In July 2022, GFEEM hosted four American professionals to launch the Manda Shivanga Medical camp, under the leadership of local leader and resident, Tony Kwalanda. The 1-day social impact volunteer event reached over 250 local children, women and elders who arrived at the Nagamara Dispensary (Clinic) to receive immediate care and OTC medications, donated by GFEEM. Please make a donation today in support of our long-term commitment to this community and their brilliant female students. Every dollar makes a HUGE DIFFERENCE!
We learned that the women of the community depend on this under-resourced clinic to birth children and to receive most disease prevention and maintenance counseling. The staff receive little to no salary or support from the Government, and rely on local volunteers to operate. Patients pay nothing to receive services.
The Cohort visited with the Principal and teachers of an all-girlS High School, St. Monica Girls Schools. We learned that the girls come from homes where their parents cannot afford the $350USD /semester school fees required to attend public school, so many of the girls stay home when their parents cannot pay. We also learned that the girls do not have access to any personal hygiene items and stay home during their menstrual cycle.
