Doctor Education

Doctor Education: Rwanda

fellow_bg The Mountain View Outreach takes its mission of preventing global blindness seriously, and believes in a simple formula: more doctors available equals more patients treated. When the Outreach was approached by These Numbers Have Faces to fund the education of students in under-served areas who want to become doctors in their own communities, founder Katherine E. Johnson, MD couldn’t have been more excited.Together with These Numbers Have Faces founder and CEO Justin Zoradi, the Outreach embarked on a mission to locate and fund education for promising young students in Rwanda who might be interested in becoming eye doctors. So far only one has been discovered, but the search is ongoing!
