The Stand & Deliver team’s transformational approach and exceptional methodology have enabled me and so many of us at Rise Up to strengthen our leadership skills and raise our voices to create positive change. For years, we have looked to Stand & Deliver to coach our staff, Leadership Council, and Rise Up leaders from around the world. Rise Up leaders take what they’ve learned and applied it in real world situations to create change — leaders like Memory Banda, who was instrumental in abolishing child marriage in Malawi, was supported by Stand & Deliver’s coaches and has continued to become more confident, influential, and impactful in leading change. Stand & Deliver generously continues to support Rise Up leaders to step into our power as advocates and change agents.
Rise Up activates women and girls to transform their lives, families and communities for a more just and equitable world through investment in local solutions, strengthening leadership, and building movements. Rise Up advances health, education and equity globally. Since the organization’s founding in 2009, Rise Up’s global network of 600+ leaders has advocated for over 120 laws and policies impacting 135 million people. Rise Up’s work in 17 countries integrates advocacy, innovative programming, and strategic partnerships with the United Nations and the White House.
