Rising Village provides initiatives that empower refugees to become
self-sufficient contributors to their community.
The RiSE Program gives local refugee and immigrant women the opportunity to develop or strengthen sewing skills through free classes that meet once a week for two hours. The women learn through project-based guidance, targeting two skill levels of beginner and intermediate.
Integrated within the instruction are English-skills learning, relationship-building, and social integration for women from countries around the world.
