Pregnancy to Public Health - Be a Dream Maker!


Theresa became pregnant during the 2014-2015 Sierra Leone Ebola crisis. Develop Africa helped her get her life back on track. She is now enrolled in college, studying public health. She wants to be an Epidemiologist - meeting a vital health need. This project will help ensure that Theresa stays in college for one more year by providing her with a full scholarship. Together we can help to make her dream of becoming an Epidemiologist come true. She is a great student and deserves our support.

Theresa became pregnant during the Ebola crisis in Sierra Leone. She was at risk of dropping out of school entirely. Thanks to a remedial program supported by a GlobalGiving Grant, she received psycho-social counseling and finished school. She is now in college, studying public health. She needs on-going support to stay in college. This project will provide a full scholarship for Theresa covering her housing, tuition, books, school supplies, a laptop, and related school expenses.


Funds from this project will help Theresa continue her education and eventually become an Epidemiologist - her desired future profession. Your support will help provide all she needs to be successful in college and ensure that she completes her education. Together we can make a huge difference in her life!

Long-Term Impact

Healthy, well-educated and emancipated women are an excellent foundation for a new and free society. Your support will help Theresa to finish the next year in college. In her chosen future career as an Epidemiologist, she will also be contributing to overall health, well-being, and national development.
