Who We Are // GlobeMed at University of Denver
Founded in 2011, GlobeMed at the University of Denver is one of 50 GlobeMed chapters working to improve the health of people living in poverty around the world. We are partnered with Buddhism for Social Development Action in Kampong Cham, Cambodia whose programs range from education and vocational training for vulnerable children to working for the government to develop democracy, to assisting drug users and people living with HIV/AIDS.
Our Partner // Buddhism for Social Development Action (BSDA) in Kampong Cham, Cambodia
Buddhism for Social Development Action was founded in 2005 by seven Buddhist Monks who were frustrated that the local monks were preaching altruism in theory but did not employ it. Although led mainly by Buddhist monks, BSDA maintains religious neutrality and aims to improve communication between the various religious groups in Cambodia. The organization has a wide variety of projects ranging from agriculture and livelihood improvement to improving basic education.
Our Project // $5000 to provide chicken pens and gardens to people with HIV/AIDS
We are working with BSDA to implement a project that will provide people living with HIV/AIDS with sustainable food and income. This project involves teaching these people and providing them with the resources that are necessary for maintaining gardens and chicken pens. Last year, GlobeMed at DU was able to raise $3,325 for this project. Our goal is to raise $5,000 more for this project this year.
