Gorloks Give Back: Webster Tashkent students meet with children with disabilities

December 03, 2019

The spirit of giving thanks was felt in Webster Tashkent on Nov. 28 as students connected to their community. On Thanksgiving, 15 student volunteers and a few staff members went to Qibray, a town near Tashkent, to meet with local children with disabilities. Webster University partnered with an organization called Opa-singillar, which translates to “Elder sisters and younger sisters,” who provides support and advocacy for women and children with disabilities. During the meeting, students played games with the children, presented them with treats, and even had a small dance.
