Join with Rising International to help end extreme poverty. Your interest and support are the cornerstones to bringing the women, and the world, out of extreme poverty.

It takes us all working together to end poverty in our lifetime. Your donation will go to help supply artisans with the tools they need to become part of the global marketplace. Your donation will help train women to build their crafts businesses and become self-sufficient. Your donation will help bring families to economic security.

Host a Rising Home Party

There are two types of Rising parties you can host:

Your Rising Representative conducts a presentation in person. If there's a Rising Representative in your area (currently in the United States only), we will connect you with a Representative, and your Rep will work with you to host a successful Rising Party. Your Representative will bring samples of the crafts, Rising catalogs, etc., to your home or office and conduct an in-person presentation for you and your party guests.

A Rising Representative provides phone support. If we don't have a Rising Representative in your area yet, you can still help end poverty by hosting a Rising Catalog Party at your home or office. We will connect you with a Rising Representative to coach you by phone. Your Rising Representative will send you catalogs and presentation materials. All you need to do is take craft orders!

If you are interested in bringing the world to your living room, sign up now to host a Rising Home or Catalog Party or click here for more information.

Travel for a Cause

Travel for Rising International! When you take your next trip to a developing country, consider visiting and getting to know a Rising artisan community. It’s a wonderful opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of our world cultures and form close relationships with people you might not have had the chance to meet.
