Thank you to our generous sponsors, volunteers, supporters and the 127 guests who joined us on October 14th to award the GAIA Global Citizen Award to The Rev. Canon David Miller and to raise funds for GAIA’s Nursing Scholars program.
Final tallies have been made, and we’re thrilled to announce all 84 scholarships have been funded for nursing students in the program this year! The event closed the funding gap, raising an incredible $84,570 in pledged income to date (including $58,720 from the live fund-a-need). With your help, we exceeded our fundraising goal, and based on that success, we plan to add an additional 5 scholarships to the upcoming group being selected for the 2019 program, increasing the incoming cohort from 15 to 20. Thank you!!
We’re grateful to all who supported from afar, as well as those who traveled to be with us in person. Together, we are strengthening the public sector healthcare workforce in Malawi. Because of YOU, geography need not determine health outcomes.
