A grass-roots effort, HOT seeks to foster meaningful relationships using medical and educational tools. 

One HOT initiat
ive is called "Teach One Child". The idea is that a single child, when taught to teach, can have both community and global impacts.  The process begins with the child's family, then the local school and community, and eventually the child's country and beyond.  Click on the image below.
