TRAVELING ABROAD. Ottawa west teen Johan Westeinde recently went to Forli, Italy as part of the Children’s International Summer Villages program. Kristy Wallace/ Ottawa This Week
For 14 year-old Johan Westeinde, the best part of going to Italy was the food – as well as going to the beach often and eating gelato everyday.
The west-end teen had a chance to live on a lavender farm in Flori, Italy this past summer as part of the Children’s International Summer Villages program.
“It’s a really great experience,” said Johan. “If you can try it out, you probably will like it.”
EMC News - For 11-year-old Troy Martin, this past summer was like no other he's ever experienced.
Troy was among several local youth to participate in a program courtesy of Children's International Summer Villages (CISV) Ottawa, one of 12 CISV chapters across Canada that enable children and young people in more than 60 countries to experience different cultures and build international friendships based on understanding and respecting cultural differences.
As part of CISV International People's Project, for members 19+, Ann Blackburn helped make a difference in the lives of children from Detroit's underprivileged suburb. Read the article by Matthew Pearson from the Ottawa Citizen describing how one of our members spent her summer vacation.
