RISE stands for Restore, Inspire, Sustain, and Empower. The RISE Project aims to build bakeries in impoverished regions, train locals to become professional bakers, and employ trained individuals to manage bakeries in their community. These bakeries will empower locals especially women, mitigate the cost of importing food (bread), and financially strengthen communities that were once socially excluded. The project's positive financial outcomes will have extensive impact on communities as locals use their incomes to feed and send their children to school. The estimated cost to build a Lift Bakery is around $5,000.
