Participants in this IPP will learn how to constructively engage in ongoing projects led by a local NGO while developing public environmental awareness and education tools. Participants will also learn about life below water in the Red Sea, responsible consumption, and the inner workings of an institution lobbying to protect our environment. The IPP Staff hope that the attitudes, skills, and knowledge learned will be applied in the participants’ own communities after completion of the project.
India. 27 December 2018 to 9 January to 2019.
This IPP will explore how sports can be used as a tool for both individual and group development.
In India, sport is not valued as much as many other countries. However, it has huge potential to improve health, well-being and both personal and community development.
Participants will help build or renovate a sport infrastructure for the use of an underprivileged community, whilst learning about the challenges faced in accessing sports facilities and quality educational programs. The participants will also lead activities, games and sports sessions with children from the partner school. They will share practices and educational materials with local teachers, as well as discover Indian sports among the children.
The IPP will work with Nehru Education Society (NES). It is an educational institution teaching 300 children from Grades 7-12th. Do not have any sports development due to lack of equipment and teaching skills.
CISV's approach to building global friendship and living together will be used to highlight the opportunity for sports and games to contribute to social inclusion.

Myanmar. 22 December 2018 to 4 January to 2019.
In this IPP will learn about the different cultures and conflicts existing within Myanmar, a country with over 135 ethnic groups, and reflect on how differences and conflicts can be overcome.
Organizing a camp for children from different ethnic backgrounds, participants will establish a camp in which the differences are less important than the bonds everyone can make with each other. Participants will also visit a local orphanage that has many different ethnic groups’ orphans, from different backgrounds and speaking different languages. Communication problems between the children can make it difficult to establish trusting relationships. Participants and children from the camp will plan activities to help build trust.p>
The Khayay School is a leader in cultural empathy education through their multilingual curriculum, bridging students, families and faculties from different backgrounds to create a holistic learning environment.
Any successful outcomes will be used to offer hope during the Rohingya crisis.
