Outreach at Christ UMC

March & April Outreach Ministry Focus


Raise the Roof Academy


A little more about Raise the Roof...


Raise the Roof Academy advocates for children and community development one household at a time.


We develop high-quality education centers, provide community health programs, create income generating opportunities, and grow alongside local leaders. This multi-faceted, participatory approach builds local capacities and long-term relationships to create lasting, community-wide advancement, rather than a transactional supply of assistance. Our vision is to see generations of empowered children lead community change and share their passions with the world.


The foundation of Raise the Roof Academy is built on a partnership with the community of Bwasandeku, which has expanded to include more than 80 villages. We work in each community to expand access to education, health and hygiene resources, income generation, and community leadership.

We work in rural communities with high incidences of poverty and child labor. At Raise the Roof Academy, we believe that creating lasting change is not a one-person job; entire communities need to come together as one, to make a difference.
