Doctor Education: Rwanda
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!
Diane is the first future eye doctor located in Rwanda. She is a hard-working and intelligent student who was deeply affected by eye problems as a child, and is dedicated to the cause of making sure that no one else from her village community has to go through the same difficulties.
The Outreach has underwritten her education as an eye doctor, and looks forward to seeing the positive impact she can make. Click here to learn more about Diane, and watch the video below to see how the Outreach has made a difference in her life.
