"I founded this organization after being moved to tears about the atrocities committed against women in Afghanistan in 2001."
"I'm involved because every woman deserves a chance to achieve economic freedom, no matter where she was born and the circumstances that surround her."
"When a child is born into poverty she has little control over her health, her education and her quality of life. Rising International reaches these women and gives them hope and dignity."
"I’m involved because helping women “rise” above their circumstances inspires me to keep fighting each and every day."
"The work that Carmel and her team are doing empowers women to rise above some very difficult circumstances. It is an honor to be a part of this life saving and life changing work."
