About Us

Every year, 5.9 million children under the age of 5 die from illnesses which could have been avoided or treated. That's 16,000 children dying everyday. We aim to improve that number through education, prevention, and sustainable partnerships with local providers.

More than one billion children are severely deprived of at least one of the essential goods or services they require to survive or grow and develop normally - these include nutrition, water, sanitation facilities, access to basic healthcare services, adequate shelter, and education.

Our Mission

Nursing Beyond Borders is a 501(c)3 public charity which exists to provide healthcare and education to children and their communities on a global scale. We focus on preventing disease before it starts by sending nurses to serve in our network of partnered orphanages, shelters, underserved schools, and clinics. Through our focused healthcare initiatives, workshops, and partnerships with local providers we provide a sustainable model of care which empowers children to improve not only their own lives, but to impact the lives of future generations.

What We Will Achieve

  • Decreased incidence of preventable diseases by improving current or non-existent vaccination schedules
  • Provide free dental, medical, and optometry care to impoverished children. (Nursing Beyond Borders pays for this expense)
  • Education regarding proper sanitation practices for using the restrooms, cooking food, and trash disposal
  • Helping local clinics see a higher volume of patients by providing skilled nurses to assist with the daily tasks of the local medical staff
  • Classes and workshops for current staff to improve best practices for caring for their community
  • Enhanced education regarding importance of dental hygiene to prevent cavities, and free oral exams
  • Identification of individuals with poor eyesight in order to provide them with glasses to improve literacy rates
  • Improve reproductive education which is usually non-existent in the host country.
  • Partnering with local doctors, dentists, and optometrists to enable sustainable follow-up care for abnormal findings.
  • Workshops and classes for the community to learn about daily changes to their routines that can help improve their longevity and prevent future diseases and disabilities.
