St. Thomas Hospital Nursing School in Chennai, India is training nurses to serve the local population. Many of these students come from very poor families, often they will be the breadwinner when they finish nursing school. Their families struggle to pay for basic needs and do not have money for tuition and living expenses.
CFHI would like to support 5 nursing students from disadvantaged backgrounds for the 2009 academic year starting in March 2009. The cost of tuition and living expenses is $922 per year. Please donate by clicking on this button. Consider that a donation of $75 will pay for the tuition and living expenses of one student for a month. This education will be life-altering for many of these students who are often the first in their family to reach higher education.
Meet a nursing student that TrainHealth supports:
Roslin Mary is looking forward to her second year of nursing school. However, her family is unable to support her education because her father has been ill and the household has very limited means. Roslin became interested in being a nurse when her father became sick. In her words, “My inability to take care of my father when no health care facilities are around my locality enlightened my mind toward the same situation faced by so many.” Roslin will work locally as a nurse when she graduates. She will also support her family and have the capabilities to tend to her ill father.
