About Us



Project XRW: Dubai from Raise the Sky on Vimeo.

Team XRW kicked off our donation drive by contributing $2,000 to sponsor 10 children at our partner school in South Africa. The Pastoral Centre Preschool is a remarkable, innovative, and life-saving institution in the heart of an informal settlement in Soweto. Help us reach our goal of $10,000, which will fill two classrooms with future leaders. Every dollar goes straight to the cause. Sponsoring a vulnerable child, aged 2-5 years, guarantees their education for a year and two square meals a day – something that none of their families can provide without assistance. Many of these kids have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS, and they are all growing up in a high-risk and high poverty environment with no electricity, running water, or indoor plumbing. We are passionate about our Flying Dreams South Africa program, and we invite you to join us. Someone from our US-based team visits the school at least once a year and Warren Pretorius, a Raise the Sky board member, lives nearby and checks in with the teachers and kids on a regular basis. Please help us make a difference to a child’s education today by clicking the “Donate” button on the top right. Any amount – any amount at all – is welcome. $200 sponsors a child for a year. It doesn’t matter how much – Donate now!
