Visit Eve Cruz's fundraising page for her Fordham University Global Outreach project to Ecuador in March 2012! Anything makes a difference!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page!

As most of you already know, I am in my last year at Fordham University in the Bronx, and I am so excited to be part of a Global Outreach project to Ecuador this spring break, March 11-18, 2012!

This really means a lot to me!

Global Outreach (GO!) is an organization at Fordham that gives students the opportunity to better understand social, economic, political, and environmental injustices by sending the volunteers to live, work, and learn in oftentimes poor and marginalized communities both nationally and internationally. GO! provides the opportunity for students to connect and learn from individuals, giving students a greater understanding of the issues plaguing our global society. GO! runs twenty-eight projects a year, and within each trip, the team works together to fundraise the cost of the trip.

Now, what will we exactly be doing in Ecuador?

Being! My project focuses on cultural immersion, which includes being, rather than doing -- we will be learning from the community we'll live in.
The organization we work with, Rostro de Cristo, brings volunteer groups from the U.S. to stay with them throughout the year. They bring us to neighbor visits, schools, and hospitals. We'll go to the market and cook and clean with the community.
Rostro de Cristo focuses on living in solidarity with the poor. Instead of acting for the poor, it is important to act with them. Our group will engage with the community to learn their stories.
We’ll participate in reflection and dialogue with our team, the community, and the yearlong volunteer from Rostro de Cristo accompanying our team.
After we come back from Ecuador, we’ll have team meetings to process and discuss our experience. We’ll hold an educational event to share our experiences with the rest of the Fordham community.
