Petersonís home was destroyed in the earthquake, and since that time his family has been living in the slums of Carrefour just trying to survive. For his family, just keeping food on the table and a roof over their heads has been a challenge, so they canít afford to send him to school. This scholarship will enable him to begin his education, giving him the chance to one day have a better life.

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.
