Dear Community Members,
My name is Eric Thepsiri and I'm an undergraduate student at the University of Connecticut. I'm also the current President of Uconn Global Brigades. Please allow me to tell you a little bit about Uconn Global Brigades. We are a fairly young organization but we are quickly gaining momentum and interest. Global Brigades is the largest student run non-profit organization in the world. The unique thing about GB is its made up of students,who are passionate about making a difference by bringing sustainable and high quality initiatives to developing communities. Our current initiatives are education, public health, medical/dental, architecture, micro finance and clean water. It really is an amazing feeling knowing you're making a tangible difference in so many lives. We recently came back from a Medical Brigade in May to Ghana, Africa. I helped to lead a team of 30 students, a physician, physician assistant, nurse and clinical coordinator. We treated over 800 patients in 4 days of our 11 day Brigade. I couldn't be anymore proud of my team. It was an extremely successful Brigade and we are excited to return May of 2013.
Our next Brigade is to Jinotega, Nicaragua. This is a brand new program, incorporating both medicine and public health. We are very excited to be one of the first universities to participate in this ongoing project. The dates are January 5th-13th 2013.
I’ve posted a link to our Ghana album on our facebook page and I encourage you to look through them. I’m asking you to pay close attention to their expressions. You'll notice some with their smiling faces exuding happiness, and an intangible amount of thanks. And others with faces of immense strength, hope and tears praying for a better future. Help UCONN GB in creating that better future!
Therefore, if you wouldn't mind helping us change more lives, please do not hesitate to contact me. I'd be more than happy to sit down and discuss more of our organization with you. Thank you so much for your time and attention.
