About Us

Northrise University was founded in 2003. It was conceived in 1988 through the experiences of its founders Doreen and Moffat Zimba.Northrise seeks to transform the lives of its students through a Christ-centered education so they can can help improve the lives of others and collectively change a nation. If Zambia and other parts of Africa are ever to be released from the gripping effects of poverty, change must be initiated from the inside out. Modeled by its founders, Northrise seeks to raise up leaders who, equipped with a solid education, will choose to stay within Zambia and be part of the change. The hope is that Northrise might inspire others to realize the Lord’s miracles around the world and to see that through Him, anything is possible. Northrise is more than a university—it is a family, a help to those in need, and above all, a community dedicated to changing a nation.
