Dear Friends, Family, Staff Members, and Invaluable Supporters,
It is with great humility that we share what we've accomplished this 2015-2016 academic year. We have raised a total of $12,000 that will be used to support our partner, Himalayan Health Care (HHC), in three Nepali villages: Tipling, Sherthung, and Lapa. The money raised will be used to build a new school in the area. This year, we were also graciously able to send two students on our GROW trip. The GROW trip allowed our students to personally see the work done in these villages and helped our chapter build a deeper relationship with our partner.
This year, we hosted another great benefit dinner and our third annual Colorado Global Health Conference on the University of Colorado Boulder campus. These accomplishments do not include our other ghU, community building events, and staff meetings that were meticulously organized every week. The outstanding members of our organization are truly unique in their ability to combine empathy, discernment, and effective leadership and turn ideas into action. Each event took coordination, time, and effort from every staff member and would not have been possible without them.
Since our founding, we have formed a substantial presence on the Boulder campus. We have formed partnerships with other mentors, CU-affiliated organizations, and off-campus organizations and businesses. In this upcoming year we look forward to continue building these relationships and strengthening our relationship with HHC. In addition, we want to continue critically analyzing and re-evaluating our beliefs, especially in terms of global health.
All of these accomplishments would not have been possible without your helping hand. We can't thank our donors, advisors, and partners enough for the endless encouragement and support. Together, we will continue to push the status quo in global health and make a positive impact.
