    Make A Difference For Scranton AND Uganda

    Each year students and faculty in nursing, theology and  health administration travel to Uganda in East Africa to learn about faith, culture and healthcare in this poor, yet vibrant country. Friendships have grown between Scranton and fledgling institutions in the region of Bwindi Rainforest in Uganda's southwest.  Medical mission work initiated by Dr. Scott Kellermann has brought new hope to this remote area as Americans have partnered with Ugandans to offer innovative and compassionate healthcare as well as provide a better life for the Batwa Pygmies who were evicted from Bwindi rainforest when it was dedicated as a reserve for the Mountain Gorilla. Students from Scranton have had the privilege of serving in hospital wards, exchanging ideas with Ugandan nursing students, and building mud homes for the displaced Batwa. Funds raised will go to institutions in the region, Scranton partners who are daily sustaining this remarkable work.

    • to Uganda Nursing School Bwindi, for scholarships for nursing students
    • to Bwindi Community Hospital, for the establishment of a rehab unit
    • to The Batwa Development Program, for new mud homes and vocational training in the Batwa settlements
    • to Epiphany Primary School, for meals and dorming costs for Batwa and other needy students
