At HorizonCosmopolite we offer international educational programs which provide opportunities
to travel to foreign countries and allow participants to experience realities that are different
from their own. Since 1997, HorizonCosmopolite has sent hundreds of people abroad to countries
across South America, Africa, Asia and Europe. Our programs are open to all interested
individuals who are ready to travel and experience an enriching, educational and culturally
In our opinion it is absolutely essential that participants do not disrupt the local community
where they will be staying. Every action and behaviour could have undesirable consequences for
the host community and therefore we need to be conscious of our conduct. For this reason,
all HorizonCosmopolite programs are developed with an emphasis on adaptation.
In addition to HorizonCosmopolite investing in international issues, we are also committed to
issues here in Quebec. We are proud to participate every year, on a volunteer basis, in the
International Solidarity Walk for Club 2/3. Through this event, thousands of youth join
together to protest the injustice of the global economy and to demand a more equal distribution
of the limited world resources.
HorizonCosmopolite believes that it is important to educate all participating groups on the
concept of selling fair trade products as a fundraising tool. HorizonCosmopolite supports
products from the following organizations: Écococo, Plan Nagua and Oxfam Québec.
To summarize, it is absolutely essential that our programs and activities have a positive
impact on the environment and on the different communities that we work closely with.
HorizonCosmopolite has been sponsoring a child, Lorie Jane, from the city of Tacloban in the Philippines since March 2011. A monthly donation of $25 ensures that Lorie Jane can access education and certain essential services.
This monetary contribution covers the cost of school fees, materials and the mandatory school uniform. Furthermore, to assure that these children eat properly, their families receive an allowance for groceries. The donation also covers a yearly medical check-up and monitoring of the child’s growth and development.
If you are interested in making a similar donation and supporting children from impoverished families, please feel free to contact us at 514-935-8436. It would be our pleasure to provide you with additional information on this sponsorship program.
