The funds you help donate will offset the costs of our travel to Colinas along with the supplies to build the homes!

Hello! My name is Arielle Polites and I am a senior at Fordham University-College at Lincoln Center in New York City. I have a double major in Spanish Literature and Anthropology, with a minor in Theater. As I am close to graduation I have been keeping my future in mind- and that definitely includes traveling and helping people in developing nations without access to vital needs that I have been blessed to have. I will be traveling in May with 7 other students and one staff member to Brazil as part of the Global Outreach program at Fordham. The group will travel to Colinas, Brazil where we will work with a local Habitat for Humanity affiliate building homes for the rural community. The team will also have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the local culture, delve into the economic history of the country, and meet with local community organizers.
