Organization: The Coordinating Committee for International Voluntary Service (CCIVS)
Introduction: CCIVS’s main focus is the quest to achieve ‘change in the minds of men’ by bringing together people of different backgrounds. It supports and develops projects based on the idea that working together on a concrete task is the most effective way of creating international friendship and understanding.
