GlobeMed at Tufts is proud to announce our new partner, PHASE Nepal!

Standing for Practical Help Achieving Self-Empowerment, PHASE Nepal was established in 2006 by a group of professionals from different sectors of Nepal. PHASE Nepal’s approach is called Community Development Programme (CDP) and serves to empower both communities and individuals at every level. Invested in providing equal opportunity to eliminate poverty, PHASE Nepal is focused in three main districts: Sindhupalchok, Gorkha, and Humla. They are a non-governmental and non-profit organization that aims to help build “self-sufficient futures” for various remote villages in the Himalayan region of Nepal that lack access to basic health services. Their main objective to “improve the livelihoods of rural people by providing immediate support” falls within seven different components – basic health services, education, agriculture and forestry, gender and social inclusion, infrastructure development, strengthening institutional capacity of groups, and conflict mitigation and social justice.

We are so excited to work with them to break the cycle of poverty in the Himalayas through community efforts to promote health, education, infrastructure, agriculture, and social justice! Learn more about PHASE Nepal at http://phasenepal.org/

What does every human deserve?

It’s a simple question with some very complex answers. Our mission is to inspire people to turn these answers into solutions. Come to our advocacy event co-sponsored by Tufts Engineers without Borders for a panel of global health experts who have worked with organizations like GlobeMed, Partners in Health, The Millennium Campus Network, and Nyaya Health.

Join us this Friday at 4:30pm in Robinson 253 to learn about how to turn our ideas about the basic and not so basic things every human deserves into action.
