We offer heartfelt condolences to the loved ones of Brightson Pallangyo (Lema), the director of the Green Foundation,
our Global Impact partner in Tanzania.
Global Impact is Seattle Community College District students, faculty
and staff, partnering with Seattle-area medical,educational and service-oriented community
organizations to provide healthcare and infrastructure-focused volunteer service in developing countries.
If you would like to DONATE funds to support Global Impact projects, including medical supplies,
please complete this form.
Global Impact volunteers make a real difference in the lives of people in developing countries.
In return, the lives of volunteers are enriched by the simple act of serving others — and learning
to see the world from a different perspective. This experience is life-changing.
Are you ready to be a Global Impact participant?
Please read our list of goals for
participants and for the "clients" we serve in developing countries. There are many
challenges and rewards.
There are many reasons why people choose to pay to volunteer.
"Healthcare providers must have
a global perspective on the patient population since a large number of our patients are from other countries. Global Impact participants...
will gain a better perspective on the health needs of a unique culture by immersing themselves in that culture."
Professor Mary Sitterley, Nursing Instructor, Seattle Community Colleges ( South campus )
