The Rising Lions was founded on 16 July 2016 by Nadine Faber, Michaela Stolzenberger, Petra Matt, Jacqueline Erbacher, Daniel Krebs, Sabine Breitenbach and Diana Berberich. The first project: A school foundation in Ghana (Africa).
The origin of The Rising Lions and its plans of establishing a school in Ghana go back to the summer of 2014. At that time, the chairwoman Nadine Faber, who worked as a tutor, visited a training seminar on new teaching methods. There she met Georg Brock, the promoter of the seminar, who is an experienced head master as well as an international school founder. Together the worked out a concept for a Ghanaian boarding school with a new, modern educational system.
