Bellevue College Rotaract Nepal Trip

A service learning trip through the Bellevue College Rotaract Club where 6 students and 2 advisors traveled to Nepal for 10 days in order to learn about the challenges that people with disabilities face as part of the Rotary Nepal/USA Disability Awareness Campaign.

Since returning, our team is implementing local service projects and events that will help to raise awareness about people with disabilities in both Nepal and the USA.
