Cassandre is currently living with her family in Carrefour. She is in her second year of university where she is studying nursing. She is very passionate about health and her dream is to become a doctor. Cassandre believes that by studying nursing, she will be able to bring support and healing to the people in her community that are struggling with their health. Achieving this goal has been difficult since money is often very tight for her family. Her mother works doing laundry and her father sells phone credits to support the family. Cassandre loves her family and though they work very hard, once the basic necessities are paid for there is limited funding left for university tuition. This scholarship will enable her to continue her education.

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.
