CREATING SUSTAINABLE COMUNITIES
Global Brigades

A brigade on campus has
waged a war on conditions
preventing communities in
developing countries from
moving forward.
The goal of the student
group, the Honduras Medi-
cal Brigade, is to improve the
quality of life in communities
in developing countries such
as Honduras and Ghana. The
organization, which is affili-
ated with the international
non-profit Global Brigades,
is divided into five different
clubs: dental, medical, micro-
finance, public health and
water.
LSA senior Rikav Chau-
han, a Honduras Medical

Brigade finance and fund-
raising chair, said a club may
choose to start with an infra-
structure initiative and then
progresa to finance, business,
water or other more devel-
oped public health projects.
The Honduras Medical
Brigade began at the Uni-
versity in 2006 as a public
health and medical outreach
club, and members have since
taken more than six trips to
developing countries. The
club's~goal is to have nine dif-
ferent clubs on campus and
to expand with projects in
architecture, business, envi-
ronment and law.
"We're trying to cover all

of the bases of creating a sus-
tainable and livable commu-
nity,' Chauhan said.
The club also hopes to
expand awareness on cam-
pus of the developing coun-
tries' needs, Chauhan said.
He added that he thinks the
club; is unique because rather
than providing a one-time
fix, Global Brigades strives
to make a community self-
sustainable in the long term.
"We want these communi-
ties to be sustainable in the
future, without the necessary
presence of Global Brigades
at those future times," Chau-
han said.
