“We should always have three friends in our lives-one who walks ahead who we look up to and follow; one who walks beside us, who is with us every step of our journey; and then, one who we reach back for and bring along after we've cleared the way.“ —-Michelle Obama
We are a nonprofit organization committed to helping women from all walks of life find resilience through education and self-development. We bring together thriving, inspirational women with those overcoming hardship, wanting to refine their life skills or rechart their life course.
We serve women in our community through two ways.
First, we award a scholarship annually to an adult woman who is pursuing higher education or professional development.
Second, we host inspirational and educational events -- attracting women from all walks of life while offering personal development forums. We aim to create a tight knit community of resilient and empowered women while providing the tools and mentorship to move through personal challenges in all phases of life.
You can empower the women and mothers of the Hawaii Island community by supporting The RISE Project. Your donations, your attendance at an upcoming event, your contributions and collaborations make this possible. Please contact us or give to the cause.
