Jonathan lives with his father and mother and four siblings. His father is getting old and his health is declining, so his mother is the primary provider and she doesn’t make enough money to send five kids to school. Jonathan so desperately wants to go to school that sometimes goes to school even if he hasn’t paid his tuition in hopes that they will let him stay, but often he is sent home. This is incredibly hard for Jonathan to the point that he is sometimes embarrassed to play with certain kids in his neighborhood because he feels inferior to them. Because of this nothing would make Jonathan happier than to return to school, and with your help he can.

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.
