Cathia grew up with her mother and little brother, and they've always struggled financially because neither of her parents had a good job. Though she was eventually able to make it through high school, it was a struggle. Still, Cathia desperately wants to continue onto higher education. Cathia says, "People that go to school suffer too, but if you don't even go to school your suffering is more severe." In many ways this sums up the situation of so many people in Haiti. Life is hard for everyone because of the economic situation, but if you are able to get your education life definitely improves.

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.
