Meet The Team

The Arise Team is made up of Zambian and British volunteers who work closely together to best support the guardians and orphans in the Arise project. 

The entire team take part in weekly visits into the community to see families supported by Arise. Lister and Agnes run the office, the weekly guardians’ meetings and our Foundations for Farming project. The team also run the weekly youth club. The team meet regularly to pray for families supported by the project.
