Village participant at age 11, written 2 years later

For me, my Village in Rome was a great first experience with CISV. There, for the first time, I dealt with topics such as poverty, racism and world peace in a playful way. That was exhausting, but instructive. And from the PreCamp I already knew a bit, what to expect. In between there were many games, and a lot of sports. I found many new friends. It took a while to get all of us together, but then it went well and was really funny.

My host families were really cool and showed me a lot. That gave me an idea of ​​the country.

To many children who were at my camp and to a JC, I still have loose contact today. It was a great experience. I like to remember it. Since then I have been to two Youth Meetings and had an Interchange. And on New Year’s Eve, I drive away again with CISV. I hope to meet someone from my village again.
