When Sony was 14 years old his mother became very ill so he dropped out of school to work. When the earthquake of 2010 struck Haiti a couple of years later his home was destroyed, and he was subsequently separated from his mother with whom he was very close. She had to move in with a friend who was able to care for her, and Sony who is a devoted Christian moved in with the pastor of his local church. It's now been nearly 10 years since he dropped out of school, but he never gave up on the hope of achieving an education, and this scholarship will enable his dream of returning to school to come true.

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.
