My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Global Brigades Inc, Fresno, CA, USA
I am going on my second year being involved with GB and I have loved every second of it! Last year I was able to go on a Medical Brigade with my university to Panama and it was incredible being a part of the sustainable work this organization does. Being in-country allowed me to see the progress GB has made and how strong of a relationship they have with their partner communities. The entire staff, from program coordinators to translators, were always approachable and friendly during the trip making it that much better. One of my favorite parts was being able to learn about the culture of the communities we visited.
Since my first brigade, I have become the Campus Chairperson (a role created by GB) at my school in order to spread the word of the work they are doing. Being in this position has allowed me to see how much work goes on behind the scenes every single day to ensure their partner communities can become empowered one day. I look forward to participating in many more brigades in the coming years!
