Sponsor a Nursing Student

The nursing shortage affects everyone the world over. Those affects being felt even more so in developing countries.  According to the WHO Africa has one nurse for every 1,800 people.  Compare this to the 14.6 the USA has and its easy to see that the African nurses have their work cut out for them.  Their resources are staggeringly limited, the population is bombarded with malaria, malnutrition, parasites and political unrest.  

Education is the best way to combat these problems and invest in a communities future.  Nurses do not just give medications and document vital signs. They are teachers, care-givers, and communities advocates. This is why the Community Nursing Scholarship was created.

Give a beautiful gift of life to these women, children and your family. Bags are hand-made and come with a letter of thanks. The average size is about 40cm x 40cm x 16cm because they are handmade we can not guarantee exact color or size. It has a button closure and is a nice heavy bag. I use this one to go grocery shopping and it holds a ton!! They also make great baby bags.
Closets to Classrooms

As health-care providers we inherently become pack-rats of information. Do you have a bookcase of medical/nursing books that you haven't looked at in 2-3 years? Do you think you will be using them in the next year? If not time to clean out your, closet, bookcase or basement. GNI is looking for nursing and medical book donations for JJ School of Nursing in Hyderabad, India and Outreach to Africa's Medical Clinic and Birth Center in Fort Portal, Uganda.

Our next trip to Fort Portal, Uganda is scheduled for Jan 13th, 2012 and out next volunteer is heading to India in March/2012. Please Contact Us
