The Matibabu College of Health Sciences features the Mary Ann van Dam School of Nursing, which offers degrees in registered community health nursing. 100% of the first graduating cohort, 26 students, passed the national exams! The program addresses the nursing shortage in rural areas of Kenya, brings students out of poverty and into an important profession, and improves the health of the local community.  The cost of a 4-year nursing degree is $5,000.  This includes tuition, housing, uniforms, books, supplies, and national exam fees.  The Scholarship Committee selects rural students with significant financial need.  Scholarship donors commit to funding the entire $5,000, though may select to give in annual installments of $1,250.  Donors can name their scholarship. For information, please contact Tiba Executive Director at diane.dodge@tibafoundation.org. Thank you!
