New York University is a chapter of Global Business Brigades, an international movement of university students and professionals building economic opportunities in the developing world. We work alongside promising entrepreneurs and experienced year-round staff to create financial opportunities in remote, rural, and under resourced areas of Honduras and Ghana. We work with communities to build community-owned banks to provide access to loans, savings accounts and financial literacy for community members. Volunteers assist in consulting micro-enterprises, assessing loan capacity payments and providing financial literacy workshops to families. nnIn conjunction with our Business Program, Global Brigades also supports communities with healthcare, sanitation and clean water projects, and uniquely implements these programs in a holistic model to meet a community’s health and economic goals. Our model systematically builds community ownership and collaboratively executes programs with the end goal of sustainably evolving to a relationship of impact monitoring.

New York University Microfinance/Human Rights Brigade June 2015 Panama
Jun 06, 2015 - Jun 14, 2015

Fundraise with your Global Business Brigades chapter on campus to meet the minimum $1,500 USD annual chapter contribution. 

The annual chapter contribution directly supports the Community Investment Fund, which enables year-round economic development in partner communities carried out by our local teams.  The Community Investment Fund is a critical component to GB’s Sustainable Transition Plan. Once a partner community has met specific health and economic development goals and brigades are no longer necessary, GB transitions projects fully to the community and offers follow-up with our local staff.

The more you fundraise, the more impact we make together!

Feb 02, 2015 - May 05, 2015

Global Brigades offers 7-day Microfinance Brigades throughout the year in Honduras and Panama. Microfinance Brigades volunteers provide financial literacy workshops and consultation to rural community banks. Throughout the brigade, volunteers divide into groups where they visit several families in their homes. During the community visits, volunteers develop an understanding of the families’ ways of life, aspirations and financial literacy. Following the visits, volunteers discuss their recommendations to the community bank on how they can improve their operations based on the information that was collected during the house visits. Additionally, students hold educational workshops with community members about the community bank focused on topics such as budgeting, savings incentives programs, and loans. At the end of week, students determine how they will allocate their Project Fund, whether it may be to an individual family or a lump sum donated to the community bank.

NYU Microfinane/HR brigade Panama JULY 2014
Jun 24, 2014 - Jun 30, 2014

Global Human Rights Brigades empowers rural communities in Panama Este to overcome barriers to access to justice through educational workshops and legal counsel. Volunteers have the opportunity to get hands on legal experience working on cases with meaningful impact under licensed international lawyers

Volunteers on a Microfinance Brigade spend seven days in a rural community of Honduras. Prior to the brigade, GB staff trains community leaders who act as the executive board members of the community bank called the Caja Rural. Throughout the brigade, volunteers divide into groups where they visit several families in their homes. During the community visits, volunteers develop an understanding of the families’ ways of life, aspirations, and financial literacy. Following the visits, the students hold a community meeting about the Caja Rural focused on topics such as budgeting, savings incentives programs, and loans. At the end of week, students determine how they will allocate their CIF(community investment fund), whether it may be to an individual family or a lump sum donated to the Caja. One of the major advantages of the GB microfinance model is that the Cajas Rurales are entirely owned and operated by the communities. Therefore, all of the community members have the opportunity to benefit collectively, and the students work directly with individuals empowering them to become more financially stable and establish economic growth within their communities.
