Tolerance Day With Guide Dogs
Be more tolerant, be more open!
This could be the motto of the Tolerance Day organized at the Herman Ottó Secondary School in Miskolc. Our Foundation, together with our guide dogs and the colleagues from the North-Hungary Visual Impairment Rehabilitation Centre took part in the event with our special, interactive sensitizing program.
The students had the opportunity to experience how visual impairment can affect even the simplest everyday activities such as signing a document. They were amazed at how difficult it was to carry out simple actions at a post office with their eyes covered with a special eye-pad.
In sound identification and shape matching games they could try out what it is like to use only their hearing and touching in everyday situations.
Our specially trained guide dogs, Dió and Delta could hardly wait to show the students that with their help, they can be really road safe and travel freely, even with their eyes covered!
The students did not quite understand why only 1% of blind people have guide dogs in Hungary. Many of them were interested to find out how they can help the guide dogs. They are more than welcome to join our group of volunteers!
A special thank you goes to Esélyek Háza (EQUAL Community Centre) for hosting this wonderful event!We hope that everyone had a great time and we are happy we could do something again for our mission: Do something VERY GOOD together for the guide dogs!
