Sponsoring Future Doctors in Nicaragua
Adelante Mujer welcomes your financial assistance in funding university expenses for young women who will serve in one of the poorest areas of the Western Hemisphere where there is only one doctor per approximately 9,000 persons. Adelante Mujer helps needy women students pay for school supplies and the expensive medical supplies and equipment required for their Intercultural Medical Program of URACCAN University in Bilwi/Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua. Each student also receives money to pay for one meal per school day because some were not able to afford the food at the university.
The very first eight Adelante Mujer doctors graduated on December 12, 2014 and on January 27, 2016 five additional Adelante Mujer students pronounced the Hippocratic Oath and became doctors. December 5, 2016 marked the addition of nine Adelante Mujer doctors with nine more becoming doctors on February 24, 2018. Currently there are 31 Adelante Mujer doctors who have received financial assistance from Adelante Mujer.
For semester one of 2018, 38 Adelante Mujer students are in the process of pursuing a degree in medicine.
