OTech is committed to make a difference for those who happen to be less fortunate and do not have the same access to education and medical care throughout the world. We are active participants in the following humanitarian projects.

Since 2004, we have traveled to the City of Chinandega in Nicaragua where we partner with the local Rotary Club to improve the level of education and healthcare.

We typically travel during spring break and are involved with the construction of clinics and pharmacies in rural areas and provide medical supplies. We construct class rooms and provide learning materials. Our sponsor is the Denton Rotary Club.

Herman Oosterwijk is board member of a clinic in Denton which provides health care services to people based on a sliding scale, i.e. depending on the amount they can afford to pay, therefore providing access to those that might not be able to afford a regular doctor.

He is chairing the IT committee and instrumental in implementing and integrating healthcare IT technology such as the EMR in this facility. For more information, see Health Services of North Texas.
