As a chapter of Global Brigades, our student organization works to organize a service project abroad. This year, we hope to travel to Nicaragua this May 6-May 12 to volunteer on a dental brigade and help them become a self-sustainable community .
Fundraising allows us to purchase supplies needed for our service project (medicine, equipment, etc.), provide scholarships to students with financial need, and fund additional Global Brigades initiatives that serve under-resourced communities in Central America.
Dental caries and periodontal diseases have historically been considered the most important global oral health burdens. Please help us bring dental hygiene to the people in Nicaragua!
