We're pleased to announce that TGF’s Fund a Nurse campaign is kicking off!
This campaign raises funds every year that support aspiring and entry-level nurses and midwives in Uganda who would otherwise not have the resources to complete full degrees. People like “Sandra,” one of our newest Scholars.
"Sandra" was the eighth of 18 children. Her father did not believe in educating girls, but her mother, a traditional healer, worked to raise money for her school fees after the free primary education program.
When her mother fell sick and was no longer able to support Sandra's education, a friend offered to pay her fees in exchange for work as a house maid. This allowed her to finish her secondary schooling. A brother helped her to attend nursing school, and Sandra collected and sold firewood to cover the rest of the costs.
She has since been working in a hospital, but needs to scale up to a full nursing degree. With a Gretta Scholarship, Sandra is a step closer to fulfilling this dream.
In 2017 we raised $30,725. This year, let’s increase our commitment to our candidates by helping us raise $35,000 to fund 10 new Gretta Scholars and the patients they will treat for years to come. Click here to donate.
Thank you for your support!
