Georges lives with his mother and four sisters and life is incredibly challenging for them. His father left several years ago, and his older brother died in the earthquake of 2010, so his family has been through many struggles, but Georges is not the type of person to lay down in the face of difficulty.
After Georges finished high school, he didn't know how he would ever afford to go to college. He waited three years, so he was elated when he received a scholarship enabling him to complete his first year of vocational school. He is currently in a three year program where he is learning to be a mechanic, and this scholarship will enable him to continue onto his second year. He is a hard-working young man, and he is determined to finish school and begin earning money to help is family.

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.
