Global Brigades is an international, non-profit organization that seeks to empower communities to reach their economic and health goals.
Public Health Brigades specifically seeks to work in solidarity with the members of these communities to create sustainable projects that have long-term health benefits. These projects include, but are not limited to, the construction of sanitation stations, the installment of eco-stoves, and the installment of concrete floors.
These simple changes have a tremendous impact as they maintain a source of clean water, reduce the respiratory effects of improper ventilation caused by traditional stoves, and combat infection by parasites and other pathogens by providing a physical barrier between the soil and the people's feet.
Apart from making a lasting impact on these communities, members of the Public Health Brigade make meaningful relationships with the local people and with other members.
