GFH Trainees Become National Trainers

Here’s yet another Kigoma success story: We recently learned that three of our star pupils from Kigoma—Grencia, Leonarda and Bernadetta—have become National Trainers and just finished their second cervical cancer training campaign in Pwani, Tanzania, a region that has had no cervical cancer prevention programs until now. They trained 12 providers for six sites: the Regional Hospital, four district hospitals and a large health center.

The three of them also held training sessions for an NGO called IMA in Mara Region and recently Leonarda trained for EGPAF in Tabora. They are now popular trainers.

Further proof that Grounds for Health is having a real, tangible impact.
