Justice Rising is a Los Angeles-based 501(c)(3) organization that exists to transform war zones through education. They believe that every child has a right to a quality education, and that education is one of the most effective tools for transforming places of conflict and combating extremist ideology.
Since 2010, Justice Rising has worked to support communities in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a country that has seen over 5.4 million people killed over the past 20 years. They currently operate seven schools serving over 1,400 students annually. Over the next five years, they aim to build 40 schools in other war-affected communities.
Join us in helping us build an As We Dwell classroom in war torn Democratic Republic of Congo. We believe when two or more are gathered, we will rise above any circumstances and bring transformative change! For more information visit their website justicerising.org
