Dear Donors,

Thank you again for your kind support of GlobeMed at Dartmouth. We’re so excited to announce that our Grassroots Onsite Work (GROW) team arrived in Chiang Mai, Thailand this past Monday! These five students will spend the next few weeks working with our partner, the Kachin Women’s Association Thailand, on three projects:

(1) teaching English to KWAT’s Political Empowerment and Capacity Building Program interns

(2) drafting an Activity Report for 2007-2013, which should give us great new insight into our partner’s history

(3) publishing a Health Programs Pamphlet for distribution among donors and community members.

You can follow the team’s blog here.

We’re also very pleased to let you know that we’ve raised the full $10,000 needed for the medical diagnostic laboratory. Again, thank you all so much for your help; we couldn’t have done it without you!

As the GROW trip continues, we’re looking forward to many updates from KWAT as well as more information on what this coming year’s project with them will be. Stay tuned!
