Razia’s Ray of Hope sent the Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley a thank-you note for the $58,000 Global Grant the club sponsored and awarded in 2017:
For the past two years, the Razia’s Ray of Hope Foundation’s (RRH) Midwifery Program Global Grant has provided medical equipment in conjunction with education and training for future maternal and child health professionals and skilled birth attendants at the Razia Jan Institute (RJI) in Deh’Subz, Afghanistan. We are especially grateful to the Nashoba Valley Rotary Club for spearheading the grant process for the Foundation.
The Global Grant for $58,000 specifically supported medical equipment and supplies; salaries for Afghan professional services (doctors, nurses, midwives, program manager and support staff); and gas, repairs, and maintenance for a van to transport faculty and students.
The Razia Jan Institute is a tuition-free, two-year midwifery training program and educational facility emphasizing the importance of maternal and infant health while supporting health-sector employment for Afghan women. Learn more about Razia's Ray of Hope at https://raziasrayofhope.org.
