Aland is the youngest of six children. When Alandís father became paralyzed after a stroke, he was unable to work. It became very difficult for the family to pay for the basics they needed to survive. Aland believes that education is one of the most important and valuable things a person can have in life. Unfortunately, because his family could not pay for his schooling, he was forced to stop school for a few months. Now he is in his second year of university and this scholarship will help him pursue his goal of getting a license in management. He is very grateful for this opportunity to learn, to grow and to transform the his future through 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.
