Postgrad news

The Fénix board has approved a grant to Viviana, a doctor, towards the fees for a Masters in Public Health at a leading Bogota university, Los Andes. This will be the highest qualification of any Fénix member. At the same board meeting it was agreed to contribute to the fees for dentist Zarina to start a postgraduate degree in Health Care Management and Auditing next year.
Young Fénix professionals are thus becoming qualified to lead and manage programmes that can change the quality of care for vulnerable children and youth - a key aim of Fénix since it was founded - and to prepare to run their own organisation when the founders retire..
It is thanks to Children of Colombia's unwavering fund-raising and the generous contributions of Mireya Ahl, Alan Riding, Kris Lane and many other donors that Fénix can now fund these advanced degrees.
