Global Brigades is the world’s largest student-led global health and sustainable development organization. As a secular, international nonprofit organization, we mobilize student volunteers and professionals to empower communities in developing countries with programs that improve quality of life while respecting local culture and improving the environment. Between 2009 and 2010, more than 4,000 volunteers from over 100 GB university chapters in the U.S., Canada, U.K., and Ireland traveled to provide health and economic development solutions to more than 50,000 beneficiaries through our teams in Panama and Honduras.

Through on-the ground full-time staff in Honduras and Panama, Global Brigades is able to work with communities to ensure sustainable work and perpetuate on-going services in-between brigades.
