About GlobeMed Mission

GlobeMed aims to strengthen the movement for global health equity by empowering students and communities to work together to improve the health of people living in poverty around the world.

Vision

We envision a world in which health – the ability to not only survive but thrive – is possible for all people, regardless of where they call home.

We believe every human life has equal worth and every person deserves the chance to thrive. This belief has drawn together our network of students, communities, and supporters from all walks of life and from every corner of the world. Health for all is within our grasp, but we can only achieve it by working together.


Message from

The Co-Presidents Dear Friends, As you might know, GlobeMed at Lawrence has taken this year to transition to a new project with our same partner organization, Health Development Initiative (HDI). We are very excited to have this new focus on HDI’s work with the Community of Potters Health and Development (COPHAD) and will be funding various projects with this community in Cyaruzinge, Rwanda throughout the coming years. This year we began raising support for two specific projects – a pig cooperative and a water pipeline. We had a very enthusiastic and dedicated staff who made our support and awareness-raising efforts a lot of fun, so we were able to build a strong community while we banded together to work for our partner. As our four current GROW interns are in Rwanda this summer, we look forward to seeing how our partnership on this specific project develops. We can’t wait to take what we learn this summer to focus our involvement with HDI and COPHAD, so that next year we have a better grasp on our relationship with that community. Learning and growing is what we’re all about in this mission to serve HDI, and we are happy to say that we’ve been doing just that! Sincerely, Heather Jost & Alana Myatt 2014-2015 Co-Presidents GlobeMed at Lawrence University

Since our founding in September 2010, our chapter has grown from 5 members to 30 members.


About Us

Our Chapter

GlobeMed  at  Lawrence  University  was  founded  in  2009  and  has  persevered   through  the  last  six  years  through  the  dedica>on,  passion  and  commitment  of   our  members.  Ini>ally  partnered  with  an  organiza>on  in  Ecuador,  GlobeMed  at   Lawrence  re-­‐partnered  in  2010  to  Health  Development  Ini>a>ve  in  Kigali,   Rwanda.  Over  the  past  five  years,  GlobeMed  and  HDI  have  built  a  partnership   that  has  greatly  impacted  our  chapter’s  work  and  our  members’  lives.  Since  the   founding  of  our  partnership,  more  than  fiPeen  GROW  interns  and  alumni  have   traveled  to  Rwanda  to  work  directly  with  HDI.  Addi>onally,  our  chapter  has   raised  more  than  $50,000  to  improve  sexual  health  and  reproduc>on  educa>on   in  Rwanda  and  the  livelihood  of  the  Community  of  PoWers  over  the  past  five   years.    


KEY FACT: Only two in ten children growing up in the Community of Potters will survive to adulthood.

Our Partnership Health Development Initiative

Founded in 2005 Health  Development  Ini>a>ve  (HDI)  was  born  from  a  common  passion  to  improve  the  quality   and  accessibility  of  health  care  for  all  Rwandans,  especially  marginalized  communi>es.  Through   advocacy,  training,  and  educa>on,  HDI  strives  to  build  sustainable  alliances  between   communi>es  and  health  care  providers.  Currently,  HDI  is  working  on  a  wide-­‐range  of  projects,   including  sexual  health  and  reproduc>on  educa>on,  community  of  poWers  health  and   development,  female  reproduc>ve  and  LGBT  rights.   Health  Development  Ini>a>ve  and  GlobeMed  at  Lawrence  University  have  been  partnered   since  2010.  Ini>ally,  GlobeMed  at  Lawrence  worked  with  HDI  on  their  sexual  health  and   reproduc>ve  educa>on  program  (SHARE).  In  2014,  the  SHARE  program  gained  full  funding.   GlobeMed  at  Lawrence  has  since  begun  contribu>ng  to  HDI’s  Community  of  PoWers  Health  and   Development  Program.    

Kigali, Rwanda

Popula>on: 2.5  million   Now  twenty  years  post  genocide,  Rwanda  is  on  the  mend  and  seeking  to  greatly  improve  its   access  and  quality  of  healthcare.  Health  dispari>es  s>ll  exist  and  improving  access  without   discrimina>on  for  all  communi>es  is  a  priority.  


Our Project- Pig Coop at the Community of Potters

BY THE NUMBERS: •  3 Pigs •  Water Supply for four months •  Vaccinations for four months •  Food supply for four months •  Pig Night Guard •  Training materials on Pig care •  Vet Assistance

During the  2014-­‐2015  school  year,  GlobeMed  at  Lawrence  University  funded   a  pig  coopera>ve  project  for  the  Community  of  PoWers  Health  and   Development  Program.   The Community of Potters, also formerly known as the Batwa, are a historically marginalized population. This year, GlobeMed at Lawrence joined HDI on their commitment to improve the livelihood of the Community of Potters living in the Village of Cyaruzinge. On request of the community, GlobeMed at Lawrence funded a pig cooperative for the members of the Abahuza cooperative with with the goal of providing an additional source of income and sustenance generation. The money raised by our chapter has been used to provide training on pig care for the 37 members of the cooperative along with the construction of a pig pen, vaccinations, and food and water for four months. Though the pig cooperative consists of only three pigs, our chapter and community members foresee the cooperative expanding in the near future.

Our university radio station, WLFM, held a 12-hour marathon to raise money for HDI. A number of Lawrence students performed on air and special guests, including President Burstein, participated in interviews. Information about GlobeMed, HDI, the Community of Potters and where to donate were added into the program.


Community Building

Through service and team-building events, community and camaraderie is fostered around global health and social justice within GlobeMed chapters, the GlobeMed network, and surrounding communities.

Total number of chapter members in 2014 – 2015: 30 members Number of community-building events: 3 Within our chapter, one aspect of community building consisted of having brunch together on weekends. We also watched several documentaries together outside of meeting times and attended dinners o-campus for special occasions. One of the highlights of community building was our annual trip to Bjorklunden, the Lawrence group retreat campus in the beautiful Door County, WI. We were able to bond that weekend and build a stronger community which helped us better meet our chapter’s goals.


globalhealthU

globalhealthU is GlobeMed’s signature year-long global health curriculum. This student-designed and driven program equips students with the critical thinking skills that will inform a life of leadership for global health.

GlobalhealthU in  the  2014-­‐2015  school  year  created  a  safe  space  for  mul>ple   discussions  emphasizing  advocacy  and  global  health  equity.  Although  many  other   topics  were  discussed,  these  topics  oPen  >ed  back  into  privilege  with  our  group  of   students.  GlobalhealthU  at  Lawrence  improved  our  community  in  the  organiza>on   and  on  campus.  We  held  3  campus-­‐wide  events,  two  of  which  involved  discussions.   Our  ghU  team  is  s>ll  working  very  hard  to  implement  a  global  engagement  policy   on  our  campus.  We  have  spoken  to  many  leaders  on  campus  and  will  be  craPing  a   policy  in  the  2015-­‐2016  school  year  with  inten>ons  to  implement  it  as  soon  as   possible.    

The Community of Potters Awareness Week During the first week of classes, we decided to raise awareness on the Community of Potters. We placed 340 flags to represent 100 people, previously known as the Batwa, that are still living as a marginalized population. We also had several information sessions and additional information available for those who wanted to learn more.

Screening of  Half  the  Sky     We  held  a  campus  wide  event  in  our   cinema  with  a  screeing  of  Half  the  Sky:   Turning  Oppression  into  Opportunity   for  Women.  APer  watching  sec>ons  of   the  film,  we  held  a  discussion  about   the  difficul>es  that  are  s>ll  being  faced   by  women  in  these  countries  today   and  what  we  can  do  to  help  and   understand.  


World Day of Social Justice February 20, 2015

What privileges do you have that others do not have? What are privileges that you do not have that others do? Our theme for World Day of Social Justice this year was “think about your privilege�. We asked students to write down which privileges they may have and which they may not have. The results were very thought provoking for everyone involved.


2015 Summit

Facing Injustice: Partnering for Systemic Change

The annual GlobeMed Global Health Summit brings together university students from across the nation for three days of intensive lectures and workshops with representatives from grassroots global health organizations and a range of experts.

# OF GROW INTERNS: LENGTH OF STAY: DATES OF TRAVEL:

GROW Internship Grassroots Onsite Work

Through Grassroots On-site Work (GROW) internships, students build capacity of their partner organization, engage in mutual learning, and ensure long-term stability of their partnership. This summer, our GROW team implemented the pig cooperative during their 8-week internship. Their work included helping with the training of community members on pig care, the construction of a pig pen, choosing pigs and evaluating the pig cooperative.


GlobeMed at Lawrence University

Our Future Dear Friends, As our GROW team continues their work in the Village of Cyaruzinge, we’re excited to see the outcome of the work and relationships that they are building with the community members. During their internship, members of our GROW team will be looking into additional projects for the upcoming school year that can be implemented to improve the livelihood of the members of Cyaruzinge. Next year, we have some big goals for sharing and planning educational events for our campus and community. As always, we are looking forward to welcoming new members into our chapter, because we believe it is important for anyone interested in global health equity to have the chance to join the pursuit. Another goal for the year will be holding an awareness event inviting all who are interested in human rights and global health. This is especially critical since we need to build connections with community members with these interests in order to continue our ability to support HDI and the Village of Cyaruzinge.

We plan  to  con>nue  suppor>ng  HDI  through  our  Razoo,  our  Global  Giving   page,  and  checks  made  out  to  Lawrence  University.     Sincerely, Madeleine Duncan & Monica Paniagua 2015-2016 Co-Presidents GlobeMed at Lawrence University
