SEALNet Project Vietnam 2012: Moving Individual Perceptions of (Dis)ability in Vietnam

This is a 2-week project that will gather 20 youth activists from overseas and from Vietnam to partner with people with disabilities in Ho Chi Minh City.

The project’s ultimate goal is to bring awareness to the presence of disability in Vietnam. In Vietnam still exists a common misconception about people with disability that they are those of burden and dependency. We will together use an active art-making process to explore the changing perspectives about (dis)ability and to change such misconception.

Moreover, we are going to have lectures and discussions on the legacy of war that concerns Agent Orange victims in Vietnam. We will also be organizing leadership workshops for Vietnamese high school students to inspire them to take the initiative and form their own projects after Project Vietnam 2012.

 You can find more information about the project here http://www.sealnetonline.org/programs/projects/2012/pv12 and our website: http://pv12.sealnetonline.org/

All of your donations will go towards sponsoring public transportation and modest meals for the team on the ground. Your support may leave a more long-lasting impact than you expect.

Thank you.
