Peace, through friendship and understanding

We started the collaboration with CISV because we share a mutual interest in creating more tolerance between people and cultures across the world. We share a vision of an open world, where differences are a source of inspiration, and where intercultural meetings between people create more understanding in the world.

One of the ways we're working with CISV is by supporting a Village that will be hosted by CISV Brazil in 2017. A Village is a camp-based residential program for 11-year-old children from around the world, which encourages children to imagine a more peaceful world and the part they can play to help build peace. The children will take part in a variety of educational, cultural and fun activities that help create lasting friendships across cultures.

A global

Founded over 60 years ago, CISV International is a global organization, with member associations in 70 countries around the world; together they are dedicated to educating and inspiring for peace through building inter-cultural friendship, cooperation and understanding.

CISV offers an exciting blend of seven fun, non-formal peace education 'learning by doing' programs, beginning with their original and unique Village programs for 11-year-olds.
