#OTPower. Breaking the barriers

The #OTPower. Breaking the barriers was an international student project.

Aim:

To facilitate the participation of people with functional diversity in raising awareness about social needs and exclusion, exercising active citizenship by promotion of the Occupational Therapy to the general population and young people of Catalonia [7,519 million people (2014)], Georgia [4 million people (2015)], Portugal [10,46 million people (2013)], and Armenia [2,977 million people (2013)].

The activities would be performed in different touristic places of Barcelona, Tbilisi, Lisbon and Yerevan.
