Jessica currently lives in Petionville with her mother, 4 sisters, and 3 brothers. Her mother was laid of from her job so now no one in the family is formally employed. Her mother cooks a Haitian food called fritay and sells it in the street, but this brings in just enough income to survive. She can’t afford to send all of her kids to school, so Jessica was staying at home until she received this scholarship. She is currently in 8th grade, and she hopes to one day graduate from high school and become a “business woman.” She has not yet decided on a specific business but she would like to start her own business. In her free time Jessica loves to play soccer with the children in her neighborhood. She also enjoys watching soccer and her favorite team is Real Madrid.

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.
