During the Covid19 crisis, nurses are urgently needed. We provide needed textbooks, clinical materials, and other supplies to student nurses in need at the Sulu State College Nursing Program in the Philippines. These southern islands rank among the highest in the world for infant and maternal mortality, according to the World Health Organization. AAI will provide the nursing students with the academic tools they need to become qualified professionals.
A large percentage of Muslim women and girls are denied the opportunity to receive a quality education to realize their professional goals. Some of these regions are affected by high poverty and dramatically diminished public health conditions. A major need exists specifically for the protection of mothers and infants in childbirth. AAI is supporting nursing students at Sulu State College. Our goal during the pandemic, is to provide opportunities for public health and livelihood for nurses.
Our "Support 50 Muslim Girls to Become Nurses" program is a global model for equal opportunity. AAI continues to provide textbooks, clinical materials, and school supplies to improve the quality for health education. In December 2021, we would like to raise a modest $60 per student in this micro-project to send essential books and supplies in the upcoming semester. These students exemplify the potential of women worldwide to contribute to their communities.
The nursing programs in Sulu are a beacon of hope for their entire community. At the beginning of this special project, only 30% of nursing students passed the national licensing exams. With your support, students at Sulu State College are now performing among the top schools in the Philippines. To sustain success, our challenge is to support additional students in their studies. As of December 2021, AAI has assisted in the successful licensing of more than 300 new nurses in Sulu.
