Information Meeting - Trip to Bali, Indonesia

Hello fellow GDP Club Member!

It is almost half way through the quarter already, meaning only half more to go! Whew... Hope you are all getting as excited as I am!

If that didn't cheer you up, I know this will. Global Development Project club is going to be proposing an awesome and exciting event for you. The idea of going to Bali , Indonesia to learn about how local nonprofits and developmental organizations are helping the poor to fight against poverty was bought up again because we are currently re-thinking of planning for the trip. Therefore, there is going to be an informational meeting next week. The purpose and goals of the trip along with requirements for the participants will be briefly explained and will then be followed by a Q&A session.

Date: Monday, February 2nd, 2009
Time: 1:30 P.M.
Venue: Inside the PUB’s dinning hall

Here are the documents related to the Bali trip’s project. Please take the time to review this information. I bet you are going to finish the reading in 5 minutes!

*The costs of airline tickets would be around $1000 if we travel as a group of 10-15 people.

I realize that it is difficult to make such a big decision now to apportion two weeks of your precious summer break. But, this project is an absolute unique chance in your college experience to truly engage and learn about how poverty is affecting billions of people’s lives and for you to make a difference for others but also yourself.

Should there be enough participants, the club will soon start planning fundraising events for the trip. The first important thing you have to ask yourself is whether you are interested in participating in this once in a lifetime chance. Secondly, it is equally as important as to whether you can allocate your time to the planning process. Last but not the least, COME to the session on Monday!

** For those who can't make to the session, please email to, so that a handout will be sent to you.

Look forward seeing you all there, new faces included!!
