A project of GlobeMed
Help GlobeMed fund 20 young leaders to work hand in hand with communities to catalyze health for people living in poverty around the world.
// GrassRoots Onsite Work (GROW) Grants
GLOBEMED BELIEVES that lack of privilege should not be a barrier to any young leader who has the potential & passion to change the world. That is why we provide grants to financially disadvantaged students who display extraordinary leadership skills and an unwavering dedication to improving the health of people living in poverty around the world.
THROUGH our GrassRoots Onsite Work Program (GROW), we provide grants that allow these exceptional students to have the life-changing experience of working hand in hand with grassroots leaders, catalyzing change that will impact the lives of an entire community.
THIS SUMMER, GlobeMed will send over 150 students into the field to improve health in their partner communities around the world. From building latrines with communty members to collaborating with grassroots leaders to design HIV/AIDS interventions, our students work in partnership with local organizations to create longlasting change.
HOWEVER, for some young leaders, the cost of these travels is impossible to cover. They have the potential to create tremendous impact, but not the means.
HOW CAN YOU HELP us power their purpose? This year, we aim to provide $15,000 in GROW grants, which will allow 20 young leaders to travel to one of our 46 GlobeMed partner communities around the world.
IF FUNDED, these 20 students will travel to Nepal, Thailand, Cambodia, Rwanda, Uganda and Ecuador, their work improving the lives of 4,085 people.
EVERY DOLLAR YOU GIVE will go directly to funding the cost of a student's internship. What's more, we'll connect you to the student whose lifechanging opportunity YOU empowered.
Please consider making a gift to power the potential of these extraordinary young changemakers today!
// About GlobeMed
IN 2007, a group of students recognized the power of partnerships between young leaders and communities to improve health around the world, and founded GlobeMed to put that power into action.
THROUGH GLOBEMED, students partner with community-based organizations on specific health projects, implement a year-long global health curriculum on campus, and participate in internships with their partner organizations on the ground. Over the past five years, GlobeMed has grown from a single chapter at Northwestern University to 46 campuses nation-wide, mobilizing over 2,000 students to raise $615,000 for more than 150 health projects.
