For the last 20 years, the Phil Simon Clinic Tanzania Project has been able to serve more men, women, and children living in Tanzania who need medical care. But we soon learned that providing care on annual trips was just the tip of the iceberg, and the communities we work in would be well served to have one of their own trained to provide health care year round!
Currently, education in healthcare is not easily accessible to women in Tanzania. This March, Women’s History Month, we are launching a new campaign to provide scholarships to train WOMEN who aspire to be physicians, nurses, and social workers, and we hope you will be part of it.
One of our first female scholars was Rebeca Gurti, an ambitious woman who had studied to be a clinical officer but always dreamed of going further and becoming an obstetrician. Rebeca is now in medical school and working diligently toward her goal.
Your support will help Rebeca finish her studies as well as support our new female scholars, all the first in their families to enter healthcare – Saum and Veronica!
