Through a competitive process, we awarded scholarship funding to three young women, who started university in Les Cayes, Haiti, this fall: Maike Jose Kestry Denart (who goes by Jose), Christelle Mervilus, and Karma Joseph.
Jose is studying nursing. She is the youngest of seven children. In her application letter, she told us, “All the various health problems facing my country, my community in particular, keep calling me to become a competent, dynamic and sympathetic nurse.”
Christelle is also a nursing student. She hopes to provide medical care in her community and to people in remote areas who cannot travel.
Karma, who graduated first in her high school class, has settled on agronomy as her major.
We are excited to get to know these young women and hope you will consider donating, or continuing to donate, to PMfGM to help defray the cost of their education. They will graduate equipped with knowledge and capabilities that will enable them to contribute to their communities.
