Occupational Therapy in Kenya

Volunteer OTs promoted healthy child development in rural communities.

Print ArticleEmail Article

Play is a primary occupation for children. A team of occupational therapists and OT students from Texas Women's University in Houston visited the Hope Bruckner Community School in Bungoma, Kenya to encourage social participation.

The team collected toys and games to give to the school, such as ring-toss, horseshoes, and jump rope, and taught the children how to play. Flip through our gallery to watch how play faciliated motor development and increased self-confidence among the children in one rural school. For more, read our accompanying feature, Occupational Justice for Kenyans.
