Meet Deborah. With one semester left of undergrad, she has plans to go to medical school and become a pediatrician. Her goal, she says, is to add value to the healthcare system in Nigeria.
Her desire to serve started when she and her family served on the mission field in Nigeria. Her father has served in numerous leadership roles with World Renew since 1990. Deborah says the overarching mission of the organization is to empower disadvantage communities to be self-sustaining. It’s a holistic approach that she appreciates—which is why a faith-based education was important.
She says the Christian Missionary Scholarship helped greatly in making that type of education affordable at Dordt College. Now with a firm foundation set, she has plans in place to finish her education and return home to help a community she loves.
