Rising International helps women who are surviving extreme poverty, gender-based violence, homelessness, and human trafficking.

Globally, the organization enables forgotten women to join the global economy by selling their handmade products online. Locally, Rising International trains women and teens to run their own businesses.

Focusing on women in high-risk environments, Rising International contributes to the end of extreme poverty. The organization has two programs: Rising America and Safe and Sound Program. Rising America coaches women and teens on the fundamentals of social entrepreneurship. The Safe and Sound Program provides tools to be more aware of human trafficking.
