Emma Powell – CISV Australia

My CISV story started in 1994 when I begged my mum to drive me through the snow in Hull, Great Britain to attend an information night about a camp with kids from all over the world. 22 years later I’m thinking of all the people I’ve met and the challenges CISV has brought into my life and it’s just incredible.
I thank CISV for the life it has brought me and for the people I have met and worked with along the way.

David Lister – CISV Great Britain

My love for CISV started after my daughter returned from her Village in the USA in 1984. Her wonderful experience inspired us all to become a CISV family and take part in CISV activities Locally, Nationally and Internationally.
At the age of 50 I took four 11 year old children to a Village in Perth, Australia—an unforgettable experience.
I feel what little I have given to CISV has enriched my life more than I could ever explain and I now have CISV friends all over the world.
