It costs approximately £3,500 to train a Nurse in Kenya. The course is a gruelling 4 years of practical and classroom sessions, including long placements in hospitals.

This year, to save me from tears, Eating Stones Fund will be aiming to raise a year's worth of tuition fees in the month leading up to Christmas! Sounds simple enough!

The impact that a trained nurse can have on their community in Kenya is huge. It is so much more than just a job for one person. The work that they do, caring for their community will have an immeasurably large reach and change the lives of countless vulnerable people. Nurses in Kenya are carers, educators, medics, pharmacists, nutritionists, shoulders to cry on, supporters, friends, confidants and often the glue in a community.

Healthy people lead to healthy communities. Eating Stones Fund want to help train as many nurses in Kenya as we can, so they can help and heal their communities.

Meshack is one of the students that we have helped, who is now a fully qualified nurse working in rural Kenya. Read his story below. Without a scholarship from Eating Stones Fund he would not have been able to complete his studies. Can you help us, help more people like Meshack this Christmas?
