Deaf Dialogue - Nippon Foundation

The Nippon Foundation set in motion the first ‘Dialogue’ meetings as a means for young, up-and-coming leaders in Asia to interact and engage in meaningful dialogue on a central theme – ‘Building a Better Asia’. After the success of the first Dialogue meeting with young Asian intellectuals in Beijing, China, in December 2006. They began to explore the possibilities of having similar meetings for young persons who are blind, deaf or physically challenged. Check more info at http://deaf-dialogue.net/
