Our Students Strive To Be College Graduates
The Rising Star Scholarship Fund covers college and vocational school tuitions for Rising Star graduates. Through strategic allocation based on the needs and academic achievements of our students, your donations provide paramount opportunities for our graduates to thrive after high school.
Redirect Your Monthly Sponsorship After Graduation
We invite you to continue to support your sponsored student beyond their high school graduation by redirecting your monthly payments to the Rising Star Scholarship Fund. If your sponsored student has not yet graduated, you can still help their older classmates further their education so they can obtain meaningful job opportunities that lead to self-reliance.
The Healing Power Of An Education: A letter From Sonia
“My name is ‘Sonia’! I was born in an isolated leprosy colony… People affected by leprosy face discrimination, self-stigma, segregation, and isolation. My parents were segregated and, after treatment, settled into a leprosy colony. Living in a leprosy colony means limited social interaction, fear of being notified or addressed as the resident of leprosy colony, and left with no or limited opportunities in life.
It was a bright… day when my parents got to know about Rising Star Outreach. That was a day full of hope… because I became a “Rising Star.” When I first visited the campus with my parents, it was beyond my imagination – a huge campus, unmatchable facilities, and an enormous scope of activities… I felt really fortunate.
I always wanted to heal… and serve… people, so I pursued nursing and completed my degree in 2019… Today, I am an educated, qualified, and professionally trained Staff Nurse at a local hospital. I am very happy… and grateful to Rising Star Outreach and my amazing sponsors… because of whom my dreams came true.”
