There have been stirrings for a while, but today we bought our flights so its about as official as it will get. We (a friend from my OT class, Shannon, and I) will be completing 8 weeks of our Fieldwork Rotations in Malawi this summer.
The flights are purchased and plans are being made. Adventure awaits us.
For those who may not know where it is located I have included a map… Malawi is in south eastern Africa. I had to look it up as well.
We will split our time between two pediatric private practices in two different cities with opportunities for volunteer work on the weekends. Currently, there is not an OT program in Malawi, but there is approval to begin one. As a result, we have the unique opportunity to contribute! Really, we have no idea what this looks like, but just the sound of it is exciting and an incredible opportunity as a student!
