James' father died when he was a young boy, so he and his 6 siblings were raised by their mother alone. They are a Christian family, and James is an active member of his local church. When his father died, his mother did not have enough money to send all of her kids to school, so she sent the two oldest children, leaving James with no way to continue his education. At times, he has been able to attend school because his mother values his education so highly, but this has brought an immense amount of financial strain on the family and is not consistent. Your support will enable James to continue his education uninterrupted through graduation without burdening his mother and his younger siblings.

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.
