Educating Orphans; Unleashing Leaders.

Our mission is to mobilize resources in order to raise and equip a generation of orphaned and vulnerable children.

Raise the Children International (RTC) is a non-profit organization based in Pretoria. Our work has one simple aim: to radically change the lives of South African orphans through quality education, empowering them to become thriving servant-leaders poised to transform their community and country. We do this by identifying orphans with great potential and equipping them through our RTC Scholars Program.

Raise the Children is driven by a community of people dedicated to ensuring every child without parents finds a loving community and receives a quality education that leads to employment. We believe this employment will give our scholars the freedom to give back to others. The RTC community includes RTC’s board and staff, our scholars and teacher-fellows, our partners on the ground in South Africa, and donors of time, talent, and money like you. We currently work with over 40 orphan scholars and hope to continue expanding our ability to serve our scholars each year.

Since its inception in 2008, RTC has helped 4 orphans graduate from high school, all of them going on to enroll in college.
