MEDICAL STUDENT SPONSORSHIP
Provision began supporting students in medical school at Saint Francis University College of Health and Allied Sciences (SFUCHAS), Ifakara in 2011. Based on WHO statistics there is one doctor for every 140,000 people living in Tanzania. We were thrilled on November 25, 2015, to see our first medical students graduate! By 2020, Provision has helped graduate 21 doctors, ten women and eleven men.
WOMEN STUDENTS' RESIDENCE
During discussions with the university staff at SFUCHAS, it became clear that a major concern for the university was safe accommodation for the young women students.
The university itself has grown and has almost no on-campus housing for students and as a result, young women have to travel at night back to rental accommodation throughout the city. While no more dangerous than other African cities the circumstances do put them at significant risk.
The university has contributed the land for the project at no cost and has agreed that one half the net cash flow per year for the student’s accommodation fees will be allocated to the next provision project, the operating costs of the oral health project.
300 women now have a safe clean on-campus residence and Provision will have the significant cash flow to assist with providing desperately needed dental care.
LUHOMBERO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Luhombero is in an isolated, very rural and very poor area in southern Tanzania with no public school nearby. The travel time to schools make attendance difficult at the best of times and during the rainy season the roads become impassable and children are unable to attend school for long periods of time.
The school is scheduled to open in January 2022 and we are very grateful to Greg and Jonelle for taking the initiative with this project that will make a great difference to the children in the community.
