How wonderful it is when a talented young adult is motivated to learn. Sadly, many children in remote villages of Peru, in spite of being talented and motivated, have to give up this idea as their family doesn’t have the means to support them.
Luckily, the NGO DB Peru told us about some of those kids and Association Léon is funding their studies at Reyna de las Americas nursing school.
So far, with Association Léon’s support, Leslie (pictured above) completed her studies of “enfermeria technica” and graduated end of 2015. Bravo Leslie, who is now also giving back to her surrounding communities by teaching first aid and CPR through DB Peru.
In 2016 we decided to support 2 new students: Jessica and Vanessa, both currently focusing on laboratory work.
