A group of Fordham’s Global Outreach (GO!) students teamed up with a local community from a rural province in Brazil to learn about deforestation and promote food sustainability.
The trip was part of GO’s program in the small Brazilian town of Colinas do Tocantins. In late May and early June, eight Fordham students and chaperone Ann Marie Boccuzzi, assistant director for alumni relations, worked with locals to start a community garden near the Sao Sebatiao Church where they stayed.
The trip gave Boccuzzi, GABELLI ’10, a former GO! executive board member, a chance to apply her Jesuit education to “help students immerse themselves in a new culture while also facing challenging social justice issues.”
