Widmayer grew up in poverty like so many other young people in Haiti. He lives with his mother and two older sisters, and through hard work and determination his family was able to help him afford classes in high school. Now he hopes to continue onto college, but the money for him to do this simply is not there. Widmayer is planning to study business, and he says he hopes to one day be among of the most successful businessmen in Haiti. This scholarship will enable him to take the next step toward this goal.

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.
