Global friendship builders

2008-07-25 Village 2008.jpg

CISV London was launched in 2011. It is a Chapter of CISV International, a UNESCO partner, offering peace education working with children and young people across the globe. Like other CISV chapters, CISV London is founded on the belief that peace is possible through friendship - and that a real difference can be made by starting with children.

Founded in 1950 by Nobel Prize Nominee, Doris Allen, CISV International is a global not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating and inspiring for peace through building inter-cultural friendship, cooperation and understanding.

Today, CISV International is a federation of 70 member associations with over 200 Chapters or local groups. For more information on CISV history,  please visit CISV International's website and on CISV Great Britain.
