Global Reach at Rutgers Day

Members of Rutgers Global Brigades take a break with Panamanian children during their Summer 2011 medical mission.

Discover how students are changing the lives of people in communities across the globe during Rutgers Day 2012.

On the College Avenue Campus, members of the Rutgers Global Brigades will share stories about their work with medical and dental clinics in developing countries, including Honduras and Panama. You may also taste dishes inspired by students’ recent trips to China, Israel and Mexico with the Center for International Social Work.

On College Avenue and Cook/Douglass, visitors can toss bean bags to support students who are helping orphans with HIV/AIDS in Tanzania.

“Our students have been going to Tanzania to help orphans for the past seven years,” says Brother Patrick Reilly, advisor to the Catholic Students Association. Your dollar per toss will be put to work this summer as Rutgers sophomores work with orphans in the capital city of Dodoma, Dar-es-Salaam, and the village of Manyoni.

You can also send inspirational greetings to children around the world from card-making stations hosted by the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund and A Global Friendship on the College Avenue Campus.
