2016 Love A Mama Midwifery Scholarship

In continuation from last year, the Love A Mama Collective would like to provide another year’s midwifery scholarship for a young nursing student, Jerina, in rural India*. In her state there are only 18 obstetricians/gynecologists serving a population of 25 million people. IMAGINE. (That’s bigger than the entire population of Australia!)

Jerina has completed the first year of her degree and has entered the second (of four) years of training. Together we want to raise another $2000 to cover her year’s tuition, books, and board.

As Jerina completes her training, she will then be able to resource dozens (if not hundreds) of young mothers in her area, where there is currently no birth professional or medical facilities available. Upon graduation she will assist Sparrow International (our partners on the ground in India) with setting up their area’s first clinic/birthing center, and will serve not only as midwife, but as a community health educator.

*We’ve decided not to disclose Jerina’s city due to security reasons.

Please note: If you decide to make a donation in honor of your own mom or another special woman in your life, we will send you a printable Mother's Day card you can give her to let her know about the gift you made on her behalf. After making your donation, please send a screenshot of your completed donation along with your name, your mom’s name (if applicable), and email address to: loveamamacollective@gmail.com. To receive a card in time for Mother’s Day, please ensure that you send us the correct information no later than Friday, May 6, 2016. Include the subject line: Mother’s Day card 2016.

The Love A Mama Midwifery Scholarship is an initiative of the Love A Mama Collective. Please visit us online to find out more! www.loveamama.com.
