Group for intercultural project

Tapis Rouge Films is looking for a group based in Rwanda, Burundi or Senegal that would correspond with a student group based in Quebec (Canada). Written correspondence is exchanged once per week via a web platform, from the beginning of November to mid-December 2014, with extension if desired. The activity is part of a non-profit pilot project that aims to compare the two cultures in terms of interpersonal relationships. How important are seniors in Canada, Rwanda, Burundi, or Senegal? How important are relation with neighbors, extended family, friends?

The pairing is the pilot phase of the game "Sponsor a Wealthy Child", to be launched in late November 2014. Developed in Rimouski (Quebec) since 2011, Sponsor a Wealthy Child is a game that immerses participants in a fictitious and reverse humanitarian campaign. Sponsors from developing countries are helping young people to the West plunged into poverty relational, having no links with the elders, neighbors, etc. The game is operated ​​on Sponsor-now.org, a platform that pair participants of the West and those of the South. When pairing is enabled, participants correspond with each other about the differences between their respective cultures in terms of interpersonal relationships.

A video was created in 2013 to promote the project: http://youtu.be/5KWGaJccjw8

Hoping to hear from you,
Turi Kumwe!
