NAU Global Brigades

The NAU Global Brigades Club will be going to Honduras in July 2023 to realize projects identified in a Virtual Community Development course offered during the first half of the Spring 2023 semester. Through conversations and surveys completed with the community of El Apintal in Honduras, 4 major project were identified.

1. Digging a well in the community that will allow access to water to people in the community who currently carry water from the river to their homes.

2. Build a library at the Elementary School for grades Kindergarten through 6th in one of the empty classrooms. Currently there are 70 students at the school who are sharing 1-2 books per grade. There are not enough resources to support reading growth in the community. 

3. Building of two hygiene stations (bathrooms) for two community members with high need. Providing a space to allow for proper sanitation will help to improve the overall health of the community. Our goal is to build 2-5 hygiene stations (or more!) each summer.

4. Build raised beds to help provide alternatives to trash, and help with flooding and dry season for crops. 

Our goal is to raise $10,000 to support these projects.


Why does NAU need donations?

State funding, tuition, and fees do not cover the total cost of what it takes to provide a university education each year.

Generosity from donors supports every facet of the student experience at Northern Arizona University. Your support opens the doors for students to attend the university at a reasonable tuition rate and increases scholarships.

Your generosity helps NAU attract and retain outstanding professors who cultivate student potential and provide a myriad of programs and research opportunities that allow Northern Arizona University to offer an exceptional education. Our donors help the university grow as an unparalleled institution of higher education.

Is my gift tax deductible?

Once we receive your gift, you will receive a receipt verifying that your gift has been deposited into the account you have specified.
