What a month!  We are delighted to share with you the graduating class of 2012.  These young doctors have put in many hours writing, defending and correcting their theses.  We are pleased with their results and are confident that many in this group will go on to do great things in Burundi for Christ.There were a total of 489 people that graduated on Friday, December 21, from Hope Africa University with 3 masters programs being newly introduced as well as the doctorate of medicine.  A very exciting and historical day in the story of Hope Africa University.

Special guests at the graduation included Dr. Frank Ogden for whom the medical school is named and Dr. Jerry Rusher who has invested many months in the training of this class of graduating doctors.
