Hi Friends,

It’s time! TGF’s “Fund a Nurse” campaign is back. 
 
Last year we raised $30,725 to fund 8 scholarships, and this year we are trying to increase our commitment and raise $35,000 to fund 10 new Gretta Scholars.
 
Gretta Scholarships give vulnerable young people and entry level nurses and midwives from poor communities the resources they need to complete an internationally recognized degree—transforming their lives and ensuring better care in community hospitals and health centers that serve the poor. Your donations help people like “Joy”—one of our new midwifery scholars, who could not otherwise afford to go back to school:
 
Orphaned at age 10, Joy (from the Acholi tribe) was taken in by an aunt who was able to support her through secondary school. As a young person, she was shocked when she saw a pregnant woman who was in pain be chased out of the hospital by a midwife who called the woman “too dirty.” The woman had to give birth in the courtyard in a pool of blood. This made Joy want to be a midwife to be able to care well for pregnant women regardless of their education, tribe, or economic status. She was able to secure a minimal (“enrolled”) midwifery certification, and for over two years has been working at a major hospital serving the Gulu District in Northern Uganda. Her Gretta Scholarship will deepen her skills, so that she can bring her compassionate care to more complicated cases.
 
Thank you for your support.
 
Please spread the word.  

Regards, 
Meg Styles-Hilton 
President and Founder
