Samahope partners with ACCESS

Support for healthcare in Nakaseke is growing!

Samahope created a crowd-sourcing opportunity to fund medical procedures in Nakaseke. They featured Dr. Robert’s story and ACCESS here.

In his 13 years of medical practice, Dr. Robert estimates that he has treated 70,000 patients! That’s a huge impact!

Through this partnership, people have the opportunity to directly fund necessary medical procedures for patients in Nakaseke who are waiting to receive care. Each procedure costs an average of $187. As of April 14, 2014, 6 treatments were fully funded!

Donate to Samahope and help Dr. Robert continue to deliver care in Nakaseke.

Fundraiser in Nakaseke Raises $2000

In May, 2012, ACCESS invited the Nakaseke Community to come and support the new nursing school. People came in big numbers! 150-200 people came and celebrated with us, and showed their support by raising $2,000!

The day was filled with students, patients and staff sharing stories of ACCESS impact on their own lives and on the Nakseke Community.

Students, staff, volunteers, and neighbors brought gifts to contribute to the auction.

We were honored with the attendance of local government leaders, and visiting leaders from Kampala.

The students worked so hard to put on this event. Thanks to SAWA World for the video summary of the event.

Help Train a New Generation of Nurses

The Problem:

Rural communities in Uganda are lacking access to health care due to a shortage of doctors and nurses.

Young men and women living in rural communities lack access to higher education.

The Solution:

ACCESS is building a Comprehensive Nursing School in Nakaseke, Uganda to help provide education and job opportunities in the rural healthcare system. This 3-year program will build a secure future for young people living in a rural area and provide crucial access to healthcare for the entire community.

Through the generous support of our partners and donors we have built a brand new classroom block, shipped a boxcar of medical and educational material, established our library and skills lab, and secured our compound with a perimeter fence. We are on our way to opening the doors of The Health Training Institute!

But we need your help. 95% of every dollar you give will go directly towards upgrading our existing community nurses’ aide program into a 3-year Accredited Nursing School.

Our nurses will make approximately $200/month. This money will send their siblings to school, provide for their families, and bring healthcare to the community. Even a small donation has the potential to transform the community!
