Hearing and Speech Impairments Tours

Within The Mediterranean Youth Networks Project funded by the European Union, in partnership with the UNISCO, Vision Organization implemented a series of youth initiatives in Jerusalem, which sought to empower the role of Jerusalemites youth and their leadership capacities, as well as to promote effective participation of young women and men in youth issues that serve their local communities, human right issues and marginalized groups and contribute to the integration of people with disabilities into community events and activities.
In the Old City in Jerusalem, youth groups conducted 6 introductory tours for children with hearing and speech disabilities, where these cultural tours aimed at highlighting the importance of the participation of this marginalized group in social and cultural activates, enhancing their association with the city and raising their awareness of their history and civilization. The children were accompanied by an expert guide and sign language interrupter. The initiative also called on community institutions to target the hearing and speech impaired category in their various activities, as an important category in building society and have the right to participate in its activities.
