October 2021 I Ushering in the Next Generation of Nursing Scholars!
November 16, 2021
GAIA Malawi, in partnership with USAID under the Leveraging Local Capacity to Strengthen Health Service Delivery project, ushered in the next generation of Nursing Scholars this month with two inauguration ceremonies for 50 Scholars studying at Kamuzu University of Health Sciences (KUHeS) and the Nkhoma College of Nursing and Midwifery. Two more inaugurations are planned in the coming weeks to welcome an additional 40 Scholars at the St. Luke's and Trinity Colleges of Nursing and Midwifery.
The ceremonies were a huge success, thanks to GAIA Malawi’s dedicated team, and featured speeches by leaders at each college, a Nursing Scholar alumnus, and USAID representatives. Both ceremonies also saw television, radio and newspaper coverage, which we are thrilled to share with you.

We are proud to welcome these aspiring nurses and midwives into the GAIA family and provide them with the support necessary to become the dedicated and passionate healthcare professionals of tomorrow.
