Who We Are // GlobeMed at University of Denver

Founded in 2011, GlobeMed at the University of Denver is one of 50 GlobeMed Chapters in the United States working to improve the health of people living in poverty around the world.

Our Partner // Buddhism for Social Development Action (BSDA) in Kampong Cham, Cambodia

Buddhism for Social Development Action (BSDA) was founded in 2005 by seven Buddhist Monks who were frustrated that the local monks were preaching altruism in theory but did not practice it. They started BSDA in an attempt to find paths of peace and friendships in the aftermath of the Khmer Rouge and genocide. Although led mainly by Buddhist monks, BSDA maintains religious neutrality and aims to improve communication among the religious groups in Cambodia.

BSDA focuses on educating street children, orphans, and vagabonds for a brighter future by offering language, computer and vocational training as well as scholarships to directly help the youth in need. Furthermore, BSDA aims to target systemic issues of poverty by educating famers, improving public schools, helping reduce the threat of HIV/AIDS, and strengthening base democracy in Cambodia.

Our Project //$7,500 to Provide Small Business Loans to Families Living in Poverty

GlobeMed at the University of Denver and Buddhism for Social Development Action (BSDA) are working together to create an income generation project that will provide loans for the creation of small businesses. This project aims to improve the livelihood of families who are receiving scholarships for their children to attend school in conjunction with Mekong Kampuchea Kids (MKK) Project and Cambodian Consortium for out of School Children (CCOSC).

This project was developed after a needs assessment that found that children were not attending school due to:

  1. Lack of awareness about importance of education
  2. External pressure that forces children to drop out of school
  3. Poverty

By providing small business loans, BSDA complements MKK and CCOSC’s educational programs and targets the systemic issue of poverty that affects students’ ability to finish school.
