Wells Mountain Initiative works to create social change through education and community building by providing bright young people in the developing world with student scholarships and skills training, building a network of grassroots leaders who are catalyzing community transformation.

WMI has provided 417 scholars in 44 countries with scholarships,
professional development and skill building. Here’s how:

WMI provides financial and social support to undergraduate students obtaining degrees in community-oriented fields, and encourages them to be the agents of change in their own communities, nations and the world.

Although our Scholars program stands at the forefront of our mission, our special interest projects play an integral role in WMI’s vision for impact. Our legacy programs include community projects in Haiti and a global literacy program.

Celinda Meza is studying to be a pharmacy technician in Peru. She says, “The pharmaceutical field is really important in my country for many reasons, most important, because in some regions of my country there is no more than a pharmacy or a little drug store. So a pharmacist with pharmacy technicians are the only health professionals to treat patients. In some cases people dont have enough money to go to a hospital, and for this reason, they go directly to a pharmacy.” #realizingglobalchange Like and share to support WMI scholars!

Rachael Katende is a scholar of medicine from Uganda who was inspired to become a doctor after “Seeing the suffering faced by brothers and sisters who died of a measles epidemic.” According to the World Health Organization, Uganda has 1.7 doctors per 10,000 people, and even fewer in rural areas. This means that people in communities like the one Rachael Katende referred to lack access to healthcare and even health education and community outreach.

“I chose to be a nurse midwife, because of being orphaned at a tender age and becoming a parent to my siblings and then my own kids. Nurses played a significant role in helping me raise them.” Grace Phiri is a registered nurse midwife in Zambia where the health sector lacks some key infrastructure, human resources and medical supplies, especially in rural parts of the country. She is working hard to improve health services so all families can receive quality care. #buildingsectors #healthcareheros
