Laura Rishell, an IPSL student researcher, collected data on Chikungunya disease to aid in the development of education programing to help mitigate the disease. Laura raised the money through a Go Fund Me campaign to be donated to Luchadores del Norte Clinic as part of her research project in the summer of 2015.
Luchadores Del Norte Health Clinic received a cash donation on behalf of Laura Rishell, for $322.61.
Also, as part of our community support, we purchase handmade recycled leather luggage tags from Wanderlust Leather to give to our students before departure. Jamie Marcath, the artist, donates 10% p\of her proceeds to one of the organizations IPSL supports and where our students serve. IPSL chooses a different NGO each year to support and donate the funds to. In 2015 we supported Luchadores del Norte in Guayaquil (raising $44.80)
In 2016 we are supporting Jane Olevolosi Orphan Center.
