These nine remarkable woman graduated from URACCAN University on Feb. 24, 2018. We now have a total of thirty-one doctors who were supported by your donations and are now working as doctors in that region. These doctors received your support, through Adelante Mujer, between one to four years during their studies. All nine have now begun their internships at the local hospital and clinics.
One of the students received funding every semester since 2014. That means she was able to maintain an 80% GPA.
As I’ve often said, life is difficult there. Each of these women has faced her own unique and difficult challenges. These are just a couple of the difficulties they faced:
One student was forced to withdraw from the program for a couple semesters while she recovered from heart problems. She returned and is now a doctor.
One applied to Adelante Mujer several times, but her grades always disqualified her. When she finally got a small cellphone to use for study, she earned the required GPA and became an Adelante Mujer student who is now an Adelante Mujer doctor.
Thank you once again fellow donors. Your donations are making a huge difference in the lives of many people on the east coast of Nicaragua
