Cultural exchange and trip to Toronto
At Alpha-Sourd Centre, a majority of participants have never left the Montreal area. As an end-of-year outing, we would like to offer them a wider-ranging experience. In addition to visiting some of Toronto’s most popular tourist attractions during a week, we wish to set up a meeting with Deaf people from another cultural community. As a matter of fact, we have already contacted people from a literacy centre similar to ours who are willing to receive us during our stay. We believe that such an exchange would allow our participants to discover the reality of Deaf people who come from a different cultural and linguistic background.
This goal is hardly achievable on an individual basis, since most of our participants live below the poverty line and therefore can not afford the cost of such a trip. That is the reason why we appeal to your great generosity and hope that you can help us carry out this project.
Be assured that any amount that you donate will be greatly appreciated.
