Two students help teach children and villagers how proper hand hygiene can help protect people and farm plants from harmful microbes and viruses.

This past July a group of Canisius College students and parents, led by college President John J. Hurley took a week-long immersion trip to Nicaragua. The purpose of the trip was two-fold: it allowed members of the Canisius community to learn more about the culture in that part of the world as well as participate in service projects to aid the local people in need.

“Superior General Father Adolfo Nicolás, S.J., calls upon university faculty and students to become voices for the voiceless, sources of human rights for those denied such rights and persons of solidarity for the poor,” said Mr. Hurley in a press release from Canisius.
