March 2011 Service Trip to Tobati, Paraguay
Team Tobati 2011 worked on the construction of a classroom in the poor neighborhood of San Rafael, which is in the community of 21 de Julio, Tobati (the fourth classroom that Team Tobati has built at the school). The squad worked on the construction of an additional classroom at the public high school in the poor rural village of Costa Alegre, Tobati. The team joined medical students from Harvard Medical School who are partnering with Team Tobati to help poor families receive adequate medical attention. Team members went from home to home visiting families in order to provide medical attention to sick individuals who would otherwise not have access to form medical attention. TT 2011 also accompanied dental students and dentists from UCONN Dental School who are partnering with Team Tobati to help poor families receive dental care. Team members traveled to different rural villages with the dental teams performing free clinics for poor families. These are just a few examples of the many projects and activities undertaken by TT 2011.
