Global Outreach is a cultural immersion and service program where Fordham students learn about various issues of social, economic, political and environmental injustice, while living a simple lifestyle that fosters communal and spiritual growth. GO! send teams of students consisting of approximately ten students, one student leader, and one chaperone to live, work, and learn with partnering organizations in approximately thirty locations throughout the United States and countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America and Europe. Global Outreach teams travel to collaborate with our partnering organizations during winter, spring, and summer break. The projects vary in both length and scope. Some projects are one week in duration while others are more than three weeks long. In addition, some of the projects focus on service related experiences such as working with Habitat for Humanity in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania while others are immersion experiences such as living with host families in Lima, Peru. Regardless of its focus, each project shares the ultimate goal of creating solidarity, learning about issues of poverty and injustice, and connecting the local with the global.

The GO! Habitat team partners with Habitat for Humanity in Guatemala to construct homes, while learning about Habitat's commitment to providing adequate and affordable housing as a basic human right. The team also explores the history and culture of the Guatemalan people by interacting closely with Habitat representatives, the masons, homeowners, children, and extended family.

I am a Junior at Fordham University. I need to fund raise 1700.00 for the trip to Guatemala by March 5th. I would really appreciate if anyone can donate. Whatever you can donate helps me pay for this trip.

Below is a video to describe Global Outreach at my school.

Thank You for your time!
