“Kites fly highest against the wind, not with it”
The Rise Institute is a media production and learning institute – a social enterprise. The Rise Institute’s mission statement is to produce meaningful, positive media productions that impact humanity in universal, yet transformative ways. Rise Institute aims to unify, inspire, humble, and bring together cultures, socio-economic classes, and individuals from all over the globe to uplift one another with stories that help us gain perspective, understanding, gratitude, and love.
The Rise Institute was inspired by a man named Agustin, “The Helicopter Man”, who lives in Honduras and who didn’t give up on his dream to fly against all odds.
