Providing opportunity. Eliminating Stigma.

In India, the leprosy affected rarely have the chance to realize their hopes and dreams. Stigmatization and the lack of opportunities are insurmountable hurdles on the path to independence. When you join with Rising Star to give the gift of opportunity, you can know that you’re making a lasting, sustainable difference. Now it’s easier than ever to make dreams come true.

OUR MISSION

Rising Star Outreach is a nonprofit organization benefiting India’s leprosy affected population. It was founded by Rebecca Douglas in 2001. In the last five years alone, Rising Star Outreach has issued more than 300 micro-grants to leprosy affected people, enabling them to start small businesses. Rising Star Outreach has provided more than 99,700 instances of medical care and assistance in that same time frame. In addition, due to Rising Star Outreach’s efforts, more than 430 Indian children have benefited from a quality education in just this last year.

The mission of Rising Star Outreach is “To help the leprosy colonies become thriving, self-sufficient communities.”

We are accomplishing this through four major initiatives:
– Economic rehabilitation
– Medical care
– Education
– Creating lifelong humanitarians

The vision of Rising Star Outreach is informed by the belief that
– All people deserve dignity and respect
– Everyone has something of value to offer the world
– Life should be intellectually, socially, emotionally, and spiritually uplifting and edifying

We envision a world that embraces these values and rejects stigma. We strive to accomplish this vision by lifting the leprosy affected, empowering them as individuals, developing sustainability in their communities, and inspiring others to action.

OUR IMPACT

Our mission is, “to help the leprosy colonies of India become thriving, self-sufficient communities.”
