The GROW team worked with Mpoma Community HIV/AIDS Initiative for 6 weeks in summer 2016.
GlobeMed’s GROW program (GrassRoots On-site Work) is a unique and powerful opportunity for GlobeMed students to directly connect with the organization they have been closely working with throughout the school year. Students return to campus as better ambassadors for their partner and, most importantly, form and strengthen relationships with community members from their project site.
This year’s GROW team will be working on a Water Access, Sanitation and Hygiene project. The project will include constructing new sources of water in the community or repairing existing sources in eight villages, as well as disseminating a sanitation and hygiene curriculum to the community members and students at Johnson Nkosi Memorial Primary School.
