Impacting the world through nursing sponsorship

Published: Friday, December 20, 2013 at 01:38 PM.

Local real estate brokerage World Impact Real Estate continues to impact the world. Recently WIRE gave a young woman a two-year   scholarship to a nursing school in India through the India Gospel League.

Some adults in the villages of India have lived their entire lives without ever meeting a nurse or doctor. Through World Impact’s donations from every real estate transaction and partnership with IGL, one young woman will receive training to return to her village and give basic medical care, immunizations and preventative care. 

Nursing training radically alters the life of a young woman, her family and the community she lives in. Students selected for nursing sponsorship are recognized for their potential, but fail to have the financial means to complete an advanced education program.

By WIRE’s sponsorship and commitment of two years, one young woman will be provided with room and board, books and tuition to accomplish the final outcome of becoming a nursing student graduate. 

Textbooks and professional journals are needed to support the new, state-accredited curriculum in all areas of nursing practice including medical, surgical, OB/GYN, pediatric, ICU and community health nursing.

It is exciting for all of WIRE’s agents to recognize we are a part of something that is bigger than just another real estate transaction. It is giving back for the benefit of someone else, someone they will probably never meet … impacting not only one life … but the lives of many without ever expecting anything in return. It is the satisfaction of knowing you are helping in a small way to enrich the lives of others.  Wire continues to impact lives — one transaction at a time.
