No, it is not true that the world cannot be changed, that there is no hope. It is not true that things are destined to stay the same and that they cannot be improved. It is not true that everyone is corrupt, everyone is a liar.
It is not true that all is lost.
YOU can change the world, YOU can make a difference, YOU can be part of the change and drive it.
How? It is very simple.
You can do it with a simple but extremely valuable gesture: by becoming a recurring donor.
Your monthly contribution represents an incredible gift because it allows us to plan for the long term thus guaranteeing continuity of our projects. Being able to count on your unwavering support gives us the possibility to continue building brick by brick the future of our schools and students independently.
In fact, we refuse government, EU and UN funds because we want to operate neutrally and be free to condemn actions when necessary. Our independence can only be protected by your gift.
Additionally, Still I Rise has experienced unprecedented growth in recent years and continues to expand at a very fast pace. We are working on some very ambitious projects among which the imminent school openings in Colombia and India. We are also planning on bringing our method to Italian schools soon.
This is our dream, which we clearly see coming true. To make it a reality and nurture it, your recurring donation is crucial.
Contributing regularly to our projects is one of the most powerful tools you can use to help us create a movement, a community of active supporters, a Big Family. A Big Family that is not born from blood ties but from the heart and believes that every child deserves the best possible education.
It is not true that a small amount does not make a difference, it is not true that a small contribution does not have the power to change things.
We often feel discouraged and powerless when looking at the hardships and injustice of this world. We think it is not possible to drive positive change because the problems out there are too big. This is not true.
We believe that everyone can make a difference with their gift and influence those around them to do the same, by bearing witness and telling stories.We all have the power to make a difference and change the world.
All of us, none excluded.
Becoming a regular donor is easy. There are just a few simple steps you need to take.
Click on the 'donate every month' button, select the amount you wish to donate, fill in the form with your details and choose your payment method.
Once you have subscribed, we will automatically process your monthly donation in the next billing cycle. Our system will continue to automatically process the monthly subscription for the amount chosen by the donor until the donor cancels the subscription.
