UPI Hub: New group activity post

Madalo W. Chapola

You have a new post in the group from Chisomo, Grace Thembulembu.

Dr. Bruce discussed the history of Urban Promise USA and Urban Promise International. It is interesting how he allowed and built a new vision surrounding Urban Promise when a need arose to train leaders passionate to serve children and the youth in their communities. Many organizations have been established here in Malawi following the model of Urban Promise International as discussed by Dr. Bruce Main. This paper describes how Rise Malawi website shows what the organization does in line with the UPI model.
The website of Rise Malawi outlines the organisation’s mission and programs. Indeed, the programs are a replica of Urban Promise USA. The mission of Rise Malawi is to equip children with the skills necessary for social development, economic independence, spiritual growth, physical well-being, and academic achievement. This mission resonates well with that of Urban Promise USA. Urban Promise USA mission is to equip Camden's children and young adults with the skills necessary for academic achievement, life management, spiritual growth, and Christian leadership. This shows that the mission of Rise Malawi is a true reflection of the Urban Promise International Model.
Rise Malawi Ministries’ program also are a UPI modelled programs. They run a feeding program, summer camp, Rights advocacy, High School, youth dream center, youth job training program, and afterschool program. This is the same model used by UPI USA. They run after-school programs, summer camps, two schools, experiential learning, job training, and a host of other programs that challenge youth to develop and realize their potential.
