Hi, I am Alimu, a final year Nursing student. When I graduate I am hoping to go back to the rural communities to render my service. Unlike the people who are living in our urban areas, I think my service is needed more in rural Gambia where our fellow citizens are in dire need of health care services. Having access to health care is a great challenge for the average rural man/woman. Health care decentralization across the country is one of the top priorities of the Government of the Gambia. I want to complement their efforts. I am urging everyone to join me in this crusade because ” a healthy nation is a wealthy nation”
A for A means more than just a scholarship to me. It’s a “messiah “. A savior that has seen me through my toughest days in my academic career. It’s the messiah that saved me from quitting University. Without their support, I would not have been where I am today. They’ve positively transformed my life as well as my family’s. I want to seize this opportunity to say “Jaraama” (Thank You) to A4A
Fall semester 2016
Spring semester 2017:
It has been a great academic year. I, with a couple of friends started an initiative called ” we are stronger together “. This initiative is geared towards helping our junior class to improve their clinical nursing practice skills. We usually go the wards as a team to help them in learning new skills that would increase their competence as well as their professionalism. In the same vain, I was elected as the Finance Secretary of the University of the Gambia’s Nursing Students Association (UTGNSA).
Fall semester 2017:

Bachelor’s degree nursing July 2018
19 december 2018
I have completed my internships and I have also gotten my license a couple of weeks back. so these days I am busy writing to hospitals and clinics for a job. my preference though is to work with the Ministry of Health in government/public hospitals where I would be posted in rural areas. I believe my services are needed there more than the urban areas.
