I'm excited to share with the GOOD community three causes that we're highlighting this month as worthy of your donations on GlobalGiving:
In Ethiopia, our friends at IntraHealth are training nurses from remote regions:
This project supports the training of community nursing students in Ethiopia's Alkan Health Science College. Originating from rural communities, the nursing students will complete a 36-month program at Allkan's Dessie campus in the rural highlands of the Amhara region. As they are motivated to return to their remote, mountainous communities after graduating, these individuals will be increasing access to primary health care services for families who struggle to see a health worker.
The 2010 earthquake destroyed the public teaching hospital in Port-au-Prince. With the Haitian Ministry of Health, PIH/ZL is equipping a new world-class, 320-bed teaching hospital in Mirebalais, Haiti.
Water For People's Everyone Forever initiative is a unique programmatic effort to support water and sanitation to Everyone in targeted municipalities, Forever. The goal is for the municipalities and communities to never again need an international water and sanitation agency to address their challenges. Water For People-Honduras is focusing its Everyone Forever programming in the mostly rural municipalities of Chinda, El Negrito, Ilama, and San Antonio de Cortes, approximately 97,000 people.
