Vanessah is one of seven kids raised by their mother alone. Their father died when Vanessah was young, and she says her mom is the “greatest mom in the entire world” because she understands how hard it has been for her mother to raise and support so many kids on her own in Haiti. Her mother works hard, but times have been tough and Vanessah had to drop out of school 2 years ago until she received an EM Scholarship. This third scholarship will enable her to complete her sophomore year, one step closer to graduating. Vanessah is very committed to pursuing and finishing her education and hopes to someday become a nurse.

Encourage this student as they embark on a journey toward finishing their education! When they log in to the Student section of our website, they'll be able to look at all of thier messages from donors and supporters alike.
It all starts with access to education. For RISING Students, this means providing whatever each student needs to return to school–tuition, uniforms, lunches, and more.
We all need the help of people who've been there before. RISING mentors care for and encourage the holistic growth of each student–mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
These are the tools students need to succeed, such as access to computers and the Internet and a local Resource Center to study, connect, and grow together.
