Dear Friends of GlobeMed at Tufts, Over the past few months, we have made significant strides as a chapter towards strengthening our partnership with Nyaya Health and increasing our chapter’s impact for the Achham community. The dedication, passion, and pragmatic solidarity that perfuses all of Nyaya’s work continues to impress and inspire us. We are especially honored to have the opportunity to work alongside Achhami community members who model strength of character in spirit each day.. This summer, between Boston and Achham, six of our chapter members interned for Nyaya Health. Beyond the work our interns accomplished, we bonded with the Nyaya staff in a profound way. Perhaps the best part of the internships was the increased engagement with our partner. We learned about how Nyaya truly lives by its core values as it achieves tangible successes. Looking ahead, we have laid out a 3-year vision in our 10,000 promises campaign that details our commitments to spreading Nyaya’s message, raising money to support Nyaya’s programs, and developing leaders for the global health movement. We have already raised $660 to begin funding the installation of new solar panels in Bayalpata Hospital to power on-site operations. On a chapter level, we produced our first annual report and made strides in our efforts to ensure better accountability, transparency, and efficiency. We are quite excited to share these and other accomplishments with you in our first quarterly report. We truly appreciate your support and look forward to a strong second year together. With lots of GlobeMed love, Laura Corlin, Hafsa Chaudhry, and Kanu Tewari

10,000 Promises

GlobeMed at Tufts is committed to growing and evolving with Nyaya Health. We have many internal operational goals for the coming year that we hope will serve to increase the impact we can ultimately have for the people of Achham. Scaling up from our initial 12 for 12 for 12 individual giving campaign, we have set a new challenge for ourselves –10,000 Promises: · Within the next year, GlobeMed at Tufts members will give at least 10,000 cumulative hours working for Nyaya Health. · Within next two years, we will spread Nyaya’s message to at least 10,000 people. · Within the next three years, we will reach the $10,000 annual fundraising mark. Our greatest strength as a chapter is our partnership with Nyaya Health. We would like to thank Nyaya Health for making us part of their team and for their inspiration, passion, and dedication. We are looking forward to our continued partnership.

Looking Ahead... Fundraising Project Overview: This year, our chapter will be helping to fund Nyaya’s Phase II Solar Power project that will provide the necessary power for the new surgical center, microbiology lab, and blood bank. Cost:

There are times when the hospital cannot provide even basic, life-saving procedures due to lack of power. By moving forward on Phase II Solar, Nyaya will have the consistent and necessary power to provide quality patient care.
