Mexico | Sociaal en natuur
Samen met 10 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 13 dagen naar een sociaal en natuurproject.
Het project duurt van 18 t/m 31 juli.
Let op: naast het inschrijfgeld betaal je ter plekke nog een lokale bijdrage van € 150.
The activities will mainly focus on sharing experiences of hearing impaired people coming from different countries. The objective is to reveal the difficulties in social, educative and work life and discover the similarities and differences between different countries. In addition, the participants will be creating a mural collectively to emphasize the inclusion of hearing impaired people in social and work life. There will be also touristic tours organized told in sign language and the participants will organize a FlashMob together.
Hosting and food will be provided during the project.
The camp will be organized at Morelia city, a very beautiful place and the state capital of Michoacan. It’s a dynamic and beautiful city and an increasingly popular tourist destination, and rightly so: the colonial heart of the city is so well preserved that it was declared a Unesco World Heritage site in 1991, and its cathedral is not just gorgeous, it’s inspirational. Morelia, founded in 1541, was one of the first Spanish cities in Nueva España. The first viceroy, Antonio de Mendoza, named it Valladolid after the Spanish city and he encouraged Spanish nobility to move here with their families. In 1828, after Nueva España had become the Republic of Mexico, the city was renamed Morelia in honor of local hero José María Morelos y Pavón, a key figure in Mexico’s independence.

The main objective of this project is to increase the awareness and inclusion of people with hearing or talking disability by bringing people with same disability together. The priority will be given to people with hearing or talking impaired during the application process. People who worked with hearing impaired and/or can use a sign language can apply as well.
