RISE UP INITIATIVES

Our global network of leaders advance health, education, and economic opportunity for girls and women through a range of innovative programs. We invest in emerging leaders and local solutions, and partner with global and in-country organizations to leverage collective resources for expanded and sustainable impact.

GIRLS EMPOWERMENT We ensure that girls can finish school, stay healthy, overcome violence, and delay early marriage. We recognize that girls are powerful leaders and advocates to drive policy change. Rise Up Girl Leaders have impacted nearly 40 million girls in Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, and South Asia.

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT We invest in emerging leaders ages 18-30 who are using technology, innovation, and advocacy to improve sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice in East Africa, South Asia, and the United States.

SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP  We enable visionary civil society leaders to strengthen their organizations and advance national-scale impact for girls and women through advocacy for education, equity, health, and social justice in Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, and South Asia.

WOMEN’S HEALTH  We invest in civil society leaders and organizations to combat non-communicable diseases and strengthen reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health outcomes, impacting 67 million lives in Nigeria and Kenya.

ECONOMIC JUSTICE  We increase the economic power of girls and women in India by using a collective impact model and digital platform to drive policy change through advocacy and leadership development.

Rise Up's initiatives leverage our proven model for enabling visionary leaders and local organizations to lead large-scale change that improves the lives of girls and women. We advance exponential change by strengthening leadership, investing in local solutions, and building movements.
