Travel for a Cause!

Travel for Rising International! When you take your next trip to a developing country, consider visiting and getting to know a Rising artisan community. It’s a wonderful opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of our world cultures and form close relationships with people you might not have had the chance to meet.  Many of our artisans live in remote and/or isolated areas, making the trip to meet them even more special.

Rising International currently supports economic development projects in over 20 countries. If you’re planning a trip to one of these countries, let us know, and we’ll arrange for you to meet our remarkable women and their families.
