Meeting Rose, and the pencils

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn recently met Rose Wittenberg who will be representing Sheffield and England this summer at the “Summer Village Project” organised and run by CISV.

 

CISV are a community of volunteers from across the globe that creates opportunities for all ages through its educational programmes. The aim of this project is to provide an environment for young people to learn about other cultures and societies.

 

The Summer Villages lasts for 28 days and are attended by selected children from 12 countries. The children of Sheffield have been given the opportunity to visit Austria, Portugal or Japan.

 

One aspect of the village is the “swap”. The children take things that represent the city they are from as well as their country as a whole and swap these with the other children.

 

Rose has made some friendship bracelets and had asked Meg to donate something that would represent the UK nationally. Meg presented Rose with a collection of House of Commons pencils that she can swap on her trip over seas.

 

Meg said:

 

"It was great to meet Rose and hear about the Summer Villages project she will be attending in the summer. The opportunity to spend time with other young people from around the world will be a great experience. I am sure they will all benefit from learning more about each others lives and cultures, and I’m delighted that the House of Commons pencils she will swapping will end up in so many different places."
