Help Ugandan Youth Earn Nursing Certifications

by Mayanja Memorial Hospital Foundation

The two students who sat their final state nursing/midwifery examinations in May 2016 passed. The students earned certification in enrollment. They have been registered by the Uganda Nurses and Midwives Council and can practice Nursing/Midwifery at enrollment level. The 2 students had faced financial challenges and were not going to complete their courses. Thanks to Global Giving donors whose financial support at the time of need. We hope the families of these two nurses will be empowered through one of their own having a qualification that will get paid employment. In a low income country such as Uganda there are many bright but needy children who qualify to be assisted to move ahead. The two students extend their sincere thanks to Global Giving donors.

Two students Christine and Daphine who were supported by Global Giving funds sat for their final examinations in May 2016. Christine sat for enrolled certificate final examinations for Nursing while Daphine sat for enrolled certificate final examinations in midwifery. The two students were facing challenges in raising funds to pay for the two progarammes. The support from Global Giving was timely and helped them to sit for final examinations and thus complete their programmes. Although the results are not yet released we are hopeful that the results will be positive.Thanks to Global Giving for the support extended to these two diserving stundents. It is our conviction that these two ladies will contribute positively to their families and and nation at large.

One of the Global Giving sponsored nursing student sat for her final examinations at Mayanja Memorial Medical Training Institute in November 2015. The results for these examinations were released last week by the Uganda Nurses and Midwives Examinations Board. The student supported by Global Giving passed  two of the four papers but has to retake two papers. The Institute has put in place arrangements to assist the student prepare for the two papers she is to retake when next offered in May 20016. It is hoped that this student will pass these retakes.I will report on the student's progress in future reports. Thanks are extended to Global Giving for all the support. 

One of our the latest beneficiary of Global Giving is Christine here below is her testimony:

"I write to appreciate Global Giving for the support rendered to me during my enrolled nursing course at Mayanja Memorial Training Institute because it was not easy on my part to get tuition fees. Global Giving funding paid for my tuition for 3 of the 4 semesters of the nursing course. I completed my enrolled nursing course final examinations two weeks ago. I am now at home on holidays as I await for the results. Thanks to Global Giving Donors for making this possible."

My name is Isaac, a former student of Mayanja Memorial Medical Training Institute and one of the beneficiaries of Global Giving scholarship scheme in 2011 through Mayanja Memorial Hospital Foundation. I take this opportunity to extend my sincere thanks to Global Giving for supporting me during my course of study.

I had a challenge with payment of tuition fee and I was one of the students who were almost failing to complete the course. My parents were unable to raise the whole amount required for tuition fee but when Global Giving gave me a scholarship they were relieved on the burden. But when Global Giving came in I managed to complete the course in May 2011. I am now employed as an Enrolled Nurse at Ntuusi Health Center level IV under the Local Government of Ssembabule District in Southern Uganda (shded on the map below).


The Health Center serves a catchment area of about 100,000 people. I am now able to contribute towards the development of my community, district and country through offering patient care and participating in public health activities.

I acknowledge the services of Global Giving towards supporting young Ugandans to attain certification in Nursing. Any support offered to other students is highly appreciated.
