Project Rise

Project Rise is an umbrella initiative by the worldwide Dawoodi Bohra community which sets out to synergise the various philanthropic contributions of its institutions and members into a unified entity. As the name suggests, its core aim is to raise and elevate society’s less fortunate in every aspect of life to such a level, that they too become empowered to do the same for others. It strives to foster a widespread culture of empathy, awareness and generosity which culminates in a society where no individual is neglected overlooked or marginalised.
