Location

Situation

In rural communities in Kenya, the majority of the people live in extreme poverty; confronted by malnutrition, malaria and the devastating affects of HIV and AIDS. Many suffer from conditions for which they are unable to access or afford the necessary treatment, resulting in many preventable deaths, particularly in children under 5. A shortage of health personnel is hampering access to medical services in Kenya especially in rural areas.Kenya needs at least 80,000 more nurses.

Solution

Out of Afrika aims to establish a nursing school at International Centre of Technology. The proposed Nursing school will be a Centre of Excellence providing programmes for the education and training for nurses at an international standard with an emphasis on whole person care and integrated approaches to the delivery of care. The Out of Afrika Nursing School will assist increase the number of trained nurses in Kenya and improve the quality of care for rural areas.
