A community health worker in La Primavera, Guatemala teaches 65 women about how plants can cure common diseases in the community. The plants come from a medicinal plant garden project that they recently started.
After making the humanity poster for World Day of Social Justice, GlobeMedders walked around Chicago spreading awareness of our cause and work.
GlobeMedders, including alumni, gather after our first Benefit Dinner where we raised over $2,300! Our keynote speakers were Dr. Michels who has had extensive experience with Guatemalan medicinal plant gardens, and our very own Jon Shaffer!
After making several posters for World Day of Social Justice, members gather to take a picture around one of our favorite Paul Farmer quotes. A real community bonding event :)
Community members and leaders take a picture with our GROW 2010 team! We were able to establish a much stronger relationship with the community of La Primavera that we partner with.
