Since 2014, we have taken students on week-long medical trips to Honduras and Nicaragua to provide health care to rural communities in need to essential medical care and to engage in public health projects to prevent recurring disease and conditions that are easily preventable.


Our Mission

To empower volunteers and under-resourced communities to resolve global health and economic disparities and inspire all involved to collaboratively work towards an equal world.

From May 21st to May 29th, I had the honor of traveling with 45 amazing individuals to Honduras through Global Brigades. And although we were merely one small wave in the large ocean of change, I am glad that we were able to make a small impact.
