Situation

Medic to Medic helps address the critical shortage of health workers in developing countries. Students from poor backgrounds struggle with the costs of university and are often forced to spend spare time trying to find funding rather than focusing on their studies. Students from these backgrounds are more likely to drop out of their training due to poverty yet they are also more likely to stay and work in their home countries once qualified.

Solution

Medic to Medic supports students at risk of dropping out of their training by guaranteeing payment of tuition fees until graduation, providing twice yearly allowances, medical equipment, books and a laptop so they have everything they need to reach their full potential and successfully qualify as a health worker. The alumni provide mentorship support to students ensuring scholarships are holistic. Since 2007 we have helped over 130 health workers qualify.

  • I would like to thank you people of Medic to Medic for the support. You are really helping me to achieve my dreams. I greatly appreciate because it would have been very hard for me to support myself here at school considering the family I come from, we find it hard to earn a living.

  • I appreciate Medic to Medic for being on my side at my moments of my greatest need, your support has contributed to the smooth running of my academic and social life at university. I take this opportunity also to thank my sponsors, they are part of my greatest story to be told.
