Training for Sustainability

This special project was initiated by GPN director Andrew Wilson, as a long-term and sustainable strategy to advance education and enhance health care in rural Nicaragua. Working with local partner NGOs, we identify exceptional rural students who are prevented by poverty from receiving an education in health care. The students are sponsored to go to school while engaging in development activities in their home communities. They provide health care for remote communities and, importantly, act as role models who give hope to other gifted and impoverished young people.
