When Paul was just 13 years old, both of his parents died of HIV/AIDS. He then went to live with his aunt along with his younger brother and sister. His aunt has children of her own, and is aging, unemployed, and unable to pay for Paul's education. Without some help, he has no way to find a good job to pay for school on his own, and even if he did, he would not have time to attend classes. That's why Paul needs a hand up. He truly believes that education is one of the keys to future success in life, so he applied for this scholarship with the hope that he will someday be able to return to his studies.

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.
