In response to the local and regional demand for Occupational Therapists (OT), The University of Southern Caribbean (USC) has become the first and only tertiary level institution in the Caribbean to offer a Master of Science programme in Occupational Therapy. In January, the Digicel Foundation donated US$14,815 to USC to retrofit a training lab for OT students in the programme. The new facility was officially unveiled on September 11 at the Maracas, St. Joseph campus.
The Ryu Dan Dojo of Enterprise Chaguanas is one step closer to realising its vision of youth empowerment. The Dojo is now equipped with jumbo soft tiles, gymnastics foam mats, computers and a printer which will assist the children who attend the centre, in their development in the Jujitsu art form and other areas in their academic lives.
