Gosour Cultural Center Participates in “The Unstoppable”

This Friday, Gusour Cultural Center is partnering with Cairo Runners in The Unstoppable Run!

Gusour’s vision is to provide opportunities for all society members of all cultural backgrounds to build bridges of understanding, acceptance, and cooperation through art and cultural activities.

One of the goals of Gusour culture Center is to help the deaf and the hearing impaired to integrate with the society by organizing Egyptian sign-language courses which enable the trainees to deal with the deaf community in their own language. These courses also cover the nature of the deaf people, types of deafness, the problems of the deaf and their relation with the society.

The program will start by an introduction at 7 AM in El-Sawy Cultural Wheel. Running will start at 7: 30 AM to 8:30AM around Zamalek area for 4 KM with the deaf community. Enjoy learning about the deaf culture and the sign language at 8:30 AM at El-Sawy where Gusour will represent awareness session about “The Deaf in Egypt”. You are welcome to join any part of the day for free.

See you all on Friday!
