AFRICAN SURGEON SCHOLARSHIP
Dr. Tom Mboya has been selected as the current recipient of The Dr. Henry and Viola Kirkland International Medical Student Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded in recognition of outstanding and compassionate leadership by a medical professional meeting the needs of the marginalized and underserved throughout Africa.
Mboya was raised in the bush country of western Kenya. Despite his modest upbringing, in an emerging nation, it has been his strong faith, leadership skills and desires to make a difference in the lives of others that has driven him to excel academically, professionally and in life.
EDIFY LEADERS recognizes Dr. Mboya’s commitment and strong desire to further his medical education in order to become a surgeon. We are proud to do our part in helping see this dream become a reality knowing his life will be used to literally save the lives of thousands in the coming years.
HONDURAN SAFE HOUSE
San Pedro Sula, Honduras is known as the murder capital of the world. Crime and prostitution only make matters worse in many impoverished neighborhoods. EDIFY LEADERS has established a safe house for young women subject to sexual exploitation and trafficking in the region. Ladies are given an opportunity to break away from the horrors that have haunted their lives.
Through day-to-day living in the safe house, they are inspired to become the women they were meant to be. They are encouraged to finish high school, learn a life skill or even complete a college degree in order to live independent and productive lives.
KENYAN VOCATIONAL TRAINING FACILITY
EDIFY LEADERS supports TAK Foundation’s desire for capacity building through training in group dynamics, financial basics, saving and loans, business skills, and specific income generating activities such as baking, animal husbandry, water well drilling, farming and small-scale manufacturing. There is a current need to expand TAK’s existing training facility in order to meet the demands for additional skilled professionals.
