Aland just finished his second year at the University of Port-Au-Prince, and he is looking forward to starting his third year. The youngest of six children, life has not always been easy for Aland and his family. His father was the main provider financially, but he was no longer able to work after a severe stroke. This was devastating for the family, but they never gave up. Aland is an intelligent, motivated young man as evidenced by the fact that he taught himself to speak English through YouTube. After he graduates from college, his dream would be to own his own business.

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.
