Who They Are

Raise the Roof Academy is an international nonprofit with its local office in Nashville, TN. They provide a free, high-quality education to children born in rural Uganda who, due to poverty and social pressures, would otherwise be cut off from the promise of education.  They originally sought out to build a single roof of a one-room school in the community, hence the nonprofit’s namesake, but the academy has since grown to a 1,300 student, multi-faceted community development initiative with onsite boarding for students, community clinic, and vocational skills training. 

Our Goals Together
  • To create a fun, dynamic identity representative of an impactful nonprofit that showcased the liveliness of the students and community 
  • Broaden their target audience to include more general donors and involved volunteers
  • Educate and increase awareness about their holistic approach to community-led development

sweet words

Honey Creative makes Raise the Roof Academy shine!
We have been working with Honey Creative for years, and we appreciate the creativity, attention to detail, patience through revisions, and how our mission is conveyed. Andi helps us think through our communication avenues to share our message more effectively while remaining consistent in our branding. It took us awhile to decide on investing in our branding/graphic design, but we now see the incredible impact it has with spreading the word about Raise the Roof Academy. Thank you, Honey Creative!
