NAU Global Brigades Club is an international movement of university students working to improve health conditions in the developing world. Through an evidence-based model, we work alongside local community members to build projects that tangibly improve lives in Honduras. Students and volunteers work with local masons and families to build eco-stoves, latrines, concrete floors, showers, and water storage units. To ensure long-term sustainability and maintenance, the Community Development and Public Health program team trains and empowers local community leaders in the formation of a Basic Sanitation Committee. The Basic Sanitation Committee is responsible for carrying out in-home assessments and monitoring the status of the projects. NAU Global Brigades also supports communities with healthcare, economic development, and clean water projects and uniquely implements these programs in a holistic model to meet a community’s health and economic goals with the end goal of sustainability.
This summer, students will return to El Apintal de Linaca to build 2 hygiene stations, 1 eco stove, drill a well to provide families access to water, build a school library and a community garden made of recycled materials. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to support these efforts.
Donate to any fund that supports NAU Global Initiatives. Once we receive 25 gifts, the following gifts will be released:
Vice Provost Yimin Wang will donate $1,000 to support student abroad programs for first-generation students
Director of Education Abroad Angelina Palumbo will donate $1000 to the NAU Global Brigades club to support community development efforts in rural Honduras.
