Because few experiences in life rival the impact of cultural immersion
and because the sense of hearing should be cherished and protected, the
Hear the World Foundation
<http://globalexplorers.cmail2.com/t/y/l/kuhklh/kyvihlrj/q>  and Global
Explorers have combined forces to offer the first-ever Hear the World
Expedition. The 2010 Expedition will integrate students of mixed hearing
abilities for the learning adventure of a lifetime in the Peruvian
Amazon. Hear the World Expeditions create a unique platform where groups
of students explore science, culture, leadership and service while at
the same time raising awareness about the importance of hearing and the
consequences of hearing loss. Learn more about Hear the World
Expeditions <http://globalexplorers.cmail2.com/t/y/l/kuhklh/kyvihlrj/a>
