Adelante Mujer provides financial assistance to women who are studying to become medical doctors at the nationally certified School of Intercultural Medicine at URACCAN University in Nicaragua.
Your support of this ministry allows us to help fund the education and training expenses of female medical students in Nicaragua.
The average Nicaraguan family earns less than $2,000 (US dollars) per year (of which approximately $1,600 is used for food). With the help of our donors, Adelante Mujer pays approximately $1,300 per student per year for financial assistance including required medical supplies & equipment and nutrition assistance.
Specifically, Adelante Mujer provides medical students with financial support for the following:
- Required school supplies – including a photocopy budget when textbooks must be shared and computers are unavailable
- Required medical supplies – such as lab coats, stethoscope, scrubs, rubber gloves, blood pressure cuff, head and foot covering, surgical masks, thermometer, hand sanitizers, etc.
- Transportation – to and from the hospital from the University.
- Travel to Managua, – Nicaragua to receive the required medical license (from the Nicaraguan Ministry of Health) as well as assistance with the cost of the license itself.
- One meal – per school day.
“Whatever you do to others, you do to me,” are the words that inspire us to reach out to help our sisters and brothers in Nicaragua. We are truly blessed to be the connection between generous donors and young women with the desire to serve their people as medical doctors.
We welcome 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 approx. 9,000 persons).
