The Olive Tree Foundation for
“Take fast hold of
instruction: let her not go: keep her: for she is thy life.” –Proverbs 4:13
(Holy Bible, King James Version)
● This foundation
offers scholarships to prospective students of optometry, nursing and other
health professions as well as to those who wish to pursue other careers such as
education, industrial management and engineering.
The foundation also sponsors a yearly optometry mission trip to Peru in which
eye exams, glasses, eye drops and small toys are provided without cost to the
impoverished populations of Lima, Peru and its surrounding areas.
Our objective is to provide funds to economically underprivileged high school
graduates in Peru and other Latin American countries. The importance of
post-high school education is paramount for the development of job security and
family stability in today’s unequal opportunity environment in third world
countries. Services provided by trained professionals in the fields of eye care
and nursing have a very positive impact on the public health of the
predominantly disadvantaged populations of third-world countries such as Peru.
