Swaziland: Population Health Experience

Thank you so much for taking the time to view my page!

This May (8th - 26th) I am going to be partaking in a study abroad opportunity to Manzini, Swaziland. Swaziland is located in southern Africa and is bordered on 3 sides by South Africa and the 4th by Mozambique.

For those of you who don't like to read here is the bottom line. The trip will cost $4,000 which covers: airfare, housing, excursions, breakfast at the hotel. This does NOT include tuition, for which I am also responsible.**

We will be staying in a hotel Mbabane, which is the capital of Swaziland and working for 8 days in a general hospital and community clinic, providing direct care to patients. Not only will I be putting my nursing skills into practice, I will be immersed in a foreign culture and learning and sharing with both patients and nurses as well.

During some of our down time we will be taking a trip into South Africa for a weekend safari; visit a cultural center, native homesteads, a visit to the Mantenga Waterfall and take a boat cruise on the St. Lucia Estuary to view the hippopotamuses and crocodiles.

We will also be developing and implementing a service-learning project that will benefit the local community.

Not only is this a once in a life time educational opportunity, I will also be gaining first-hand knowledge about medical mission work, and hopefully be able to decide if this is something I truly wish to do upon graduation (after loans are repaid).

So, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you for your donation. No donation is too small (or too large ;)). **In the event we do reach the $4,000 for this trip, anything above that will go towards the rest of my tuition for the rest of my summer and fall courses (which will be approximately another $7500).

Thank you for believing in me!
