Dreams of higher education within reach

Brian (not his real name) is a 42 year old lepromatous leprosy patient in the Southern Philippines who is completing the Mulit-Drug Therapy.  He had to stop attending school last year due to his illness but he is determined to enrol in school once more. He is currently pursuing a Masters degree in Education but lacks funds to pay the full tuition this schoolyear. With the help of the government dermatology service in his city, he learned about the Philippine Leprosy Mission educational assistance fund and applied for support.  We are processing his application for tuition fee funds so that he may continue his studies and achieve his dream of working as a full-fledge teacher.

Our current 'scholar' Raul (not his real name) has performed remarkably well, showing us high grades in all his subjects in Psychology:) We are now providing additional financial support for his internship which will be completed this schoolyear.

The COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdowns have caused delays in our efforts to reach many leprosy patients needing formal education. Aside from Brian, there are more adult leprosy patients who are hoping to complete their college education or perhaps support their children through high school and college. Slowly but surely, we will reach our target of 30 Filipino leprosy patients empowered and transformed through education!
