[Verse]

One thing we ask of You

One thing that we desire

That as we worship You

Lord come and change our lives

[Chorus]

Arise, arise, arise, arise

Arise, take Your place

Be enthroned on our praise, arise

King of kings, Holy God, as we sing arise

Arise, arise, arise

We lift You up, we lift You up, We lift You up on our praises, yeah

We lift You up, we lift You up, We lift You up on our praises

Arise, arise, arise, arise, arise

Four Key Areas of Influence

ARISE HEALTH PROGRAMMES

ARISE has also been passionate about the health of women over the years and free preventive medical care have been offered to over 20,000 women in the area of HIV tests, Eye tests and giving out of reading glasses, Blood Pressure checks, Blood Sugar level tests, Malaria parasite tests, Typhoid tests, Cervical screening and Dental care at the Annual conferences. Organisations with like passion such as Emzor Pharmaceuticals, Cadbury, May & Baker, Evans, Christian Medical and Dental Association (CMDA), Women of Faith Doctors, Famfa Oil and several individuals who have contributed in their own ways have made it  possible to make such impact.
In order to expand its reach, ARISE is committed to the establishment of Medical Clinics which have been bringing Primary Health Care to the doorsteps of different communities within Lagos State and Abuja. In the course of its journey, the Mobile Clinics have visited two schools within Lagos State – Queen’s College and Methodist Girl’s High School both in Yaba. It has also a been part of the Redeemers Day celebrations for the past three years giving free medical care to both the students and the parents in attendance.
Also, a Free Women’s Clinic was established in 2014 at the Healing Stripes Hospital, Victoria Island as an out patient clinic in order to have free medical care available for the women on a more regular basis. 
ARISE has up till-date been able to bring free health care services to an average of about 15,000 people made up of men, women and children since its first outreach.

ARISE EDUCATION PROGRAMMES

Arise Women uses education and the ARISE MODULE as a tool to teach compassion, good neighbourliness, tolerance, and kindness.

ARISE GOES TO SCHOOL

Arise Women initiated the Arise goes to school initiative which has visited Queens College and Methodist Girls High School, Lagos. In these schools, they offered medical care to students, teaching and non-teaching staff.

The Arise Women provided a generator to Rebecca’s room, a resource centre for the visually impaired students of Queens College, Lagos.

In Makoko, a riverine area in Lagos, Arise sponsored the building of a school, provided mattresses and mosquito nets to the pupils.D

ARISE LEADERSHIP PROGRAMMES

The Handmaidens Women in Leadership Forum is a platform for bringing all women together irrespective of their Race, Tribe or Religion to enlighten and empower them sufficiently to enable them to have the desired impact on our society that they are uniquely crafted to have.

Today, we see relatively fewer women in top roles for various reasons including: lack of opportunity, fear of risks involved, the sacrifices and choices they have to make and the perception that they must compromise to get to the top. We also see many women with immense potential who are not achieving their God-given destinies.

Our objective is to challenge more women to take on positions of responsibility in line with scriptural principles and ensure we impact our homes, businesses and society positively in growing our nation.

In addition to this, The Arise Women’s Conference holds annually on the last Saturday of October together with the health fair where all women come together. At the Conference health checks and consultations including eye tests, dental checks, fertility clinics, cancer screening centres, sickle cell anaemia are carried out free of charge on all attendees. We have the major medical consultants, leading hospitals and professionals at the fair.

ARISE EMPOWERMENT PROGRAMMES

ARISE is committed to accelerating nation building through the empowerment of women in the society. In achieving this, ARISE has been able to train thousands of women in various skills through its annual Skill Acquisition Programmes in collaboration with the Lagos State Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation. Man of the students have themselves become trainers in the skills acquired. Skills acquired include Soap Making, Hat Making, Sewing Classes, Bead Making, Make-Up Classes, Event Management and Planning and Traditional Wedding Compering. Work tools like freezers, pepper-grinding machines, sewing machines etc. have also been donated to women in support of their businesses. 
Still on the area of women empowerment, ARISE recently sponsored women to acquire skills in leather works i.e. Shoe, Bag an Belt Making for a period of three months at the Inspire Vocational Academy.
In the course of 2018, it is worthy to note that the ARISE Women have empowered several women to expand their businesses through the Instagram competition where the winners have been given a grant of One Hundred Thousand Naira (N100,000) each towards their businesses.

" Courage is not the absence of fear. The brave woman is not she who does not feel afraid, but she who conquers that fear"
