My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Global Brigades Inc, Fresno, CA, USA
I first joined GB as a sophomore, and now that I enter my senior year as president and campus chairperson of my chapter I realize how insurmountably important it has become in my life. Not only has this organization given me the opportunity to experience medicine in the developing world, it has opened my eyes to the delicate intertwinement of culture and health through meaningful face-to-face interactions with individuals I met while on the brigade in Panama. Not only this, but GB's sustainable and holistic model offers long lasting change by thoughtfully empowering communities, a refreshing contrast to the "fix-it" model followed by most charities. I highly recommend GB to anyone that is looking to be a part of a lasting impact on developing communities abroad!
