Year 3 Project Timeline

Overview

The Democratic Republic of the Congo is a really difficult place to live. Life expectancy is low and trained health professionals are rare, particularly outside the capital city. Training general practitioners (7 years) and nursing staff (4 years) in one of the worst-affected areas will bring about long-term benefits to this African nation. The project co- funds medical/nursing students in their second year of study onwards, once students have proven their commitment and reliability. Funding covers up to 90% of the cost of a year’s tuition after Year 1, so that students also contribute to the cost of their education. Year 3 begins 1/12/23.
