The Global Fellows program was developed for the next generation of global leaders to learn the complexities of poverty and the importance of a community-led philosophy of development with the intent to encourage impactful collaborative strategies moving forward.
Global Fellows are leaders who are motivated to make an impact on one of the world’s biggest problems; they are collaborative, adaptive, and self-aware.
Our curriculum prepares students for a week-long experience in communities impacted by extreme poverty in Kenya, Bangladesh, and Honduras, and includes resources and guidance to support the analytical thinking process around the topic of global development. Global Fellows learn the importance of entering project communities with respect, humility, and a willingness to listen and learn from people who understand their needs best. Students will gain a new perspective and a powerful voice to advocate for the people they meet who need safe water.

Water from Wine is a very small winery and unable to benefit from competitive shipping rates that larger wineries enjoy. Wine is shipped via UPS, which adds additional fees for shipping alcohol because an adult over 21 must sign for delivery. Water from Wine does not profit from shipping costs.
