Global Brigades at Indiana University will be having it 2010-2011 call-out meeting on April 6th and 7th at 8pm. The room is Ballantine 347. Come find out about IU's fastest growing international sustainability group on campus.

This school year, we took 100 students to Honduras and Panama.

With teamwork, we were able to connect four homes to clean water systems, build 8 new cement floors, set-up latrines and stoves, provide farmers in Panama with new business solutions, and treat over 1500 patients with various medical conditions.

This upcoming season, we will be announcing two new brigades: Environmental and Microfinance. Make history as being IU's very first Environmental and Microfinance brigaders!
