Headquarters for Global Brigades in the United Kingdom. Global Brigades UK was founded in 2009. GB UK volunteers have participated in a variety of Global Brigades programs in Honduras, Panama, and Ghana. However, with the recent expansion of GB to Ghana, UK volunteers have began to focus more of their brigades to Ghana, focusing on the the Medical, Microfinance, and Water Brigades programs. In 2010, GB UK grew from 35 brigaders to 80 brigaders, then in 2011 grew to 242 brigaders and in 2012 442 brigaders travelled around the world to take part in brigades. GB UK hopes to double the number of brigaders in 2013. Below are the current universities with Global Brigades chapters.

Water Brigade volunteers assist in designing and implementing water systems to prevent communicable illnesses in communities through 10 day Water Brigades in Ghana. Student volunteers can either join an existing Water Brigades chapter on their campus or create their own chapter and recruit other volunteers. Our in-country team members work with water experts and community leaders to design large scale water systems for the entire community. Once the water system is blueprinted, volunteers work side-by-side with community members to implement and provide the education for maintenance through the creation of community water counsels.
