CULTURAL DISCOVERY PROGRAM (CDP)

Established in February 2017, the Cultural Discovery Program (CDP) advances cultural understanding between global SOAR Chapter volunteers and the orphaned children in Armenia. Chapter members around the world develop an introductory course on their city/country of residence and present it to the children who have selected those regions of interest. SOAR volunteers provide information about the country’s geography, history, language, and food, facilitating a cultural connection that leaves a lasting mark of curiosity and friendship. Chapter volunteers (and their own children) are reciprocally enriched with a deeper understanding of the Armenian culture, taught from the eyes of the orphaned child.
