We were happy to welcome our first visiting group, occupational therapy students from Worcester State University, this January. The students volunteered at a nearby occupational therapy organization, Tesoros de Dios
. Program Directors were able to actively participate in the WSU visit by acting as translators at Tesoros de Dios. For a lot of health focused Program Directors, this was a great exposure to developmental, physical, and occupational therapy issues (such as cerebral palsy, autism, Down syndrome and spina bifida) within our communities here in Managua. After a great week of volunteering, the WSU group was able to explore the nearby cities of Laguna de Apoyo and Granada. Overall, we had an exciting week and look forward to hosting them again next year!
