WHEN YOU HOST A PARTY, WOMEN PROSPER
Rising International offers women who are survivors of abuse, homelessness, and human trafficking the entrepreneurial skills and a solid pathway to become self-supporting. By hosting a party, you become a critical link between our local entrepreneurs and global artisans, providing them with an in-home marketplace where they can showcase their strengths, share their stories, and sell their goods.

A GLOBAL ARTISAN
An escape from traffickers brought Maculeuse to a remote village in Haiti. There, she learned to make exclusive Rising International signature scarves. With proceeds from her work, she can now send her children to school and fulfill her dream of a better future. See her scarves here.
MEET OUR SUPER HOSTS
Since 2003 Nancy, has invited friends and family to her Rising International party where they shop and share a dish. Several years ago, these parties became so popular, she couldn’t fit everyone in. To meet the demand, she now hosts several parties a year.
George brings his community into the party mix by frequently co-hosting with a member of the County Board of Supervisors in his town. Often they fire up the grill. While taking his BBQ skills to the next level he’s helping Rising International women reach the next level of economic security.
