I cannot say enough about how amazing the experience was. I was a participant of CFP in 2011, my group visited Portland,OR. Recalling the experience after two years from when my involvement with CFP started, I have created such precious friendships, firstly the one with my T/C pair, her name is Gizem, the teens I travelled with and all the other teens that I met and became friends with because of CFP. We were received in a environment of such warmth and love by all the people involved, our host families, our coordinators in Cyprus and the US and every volunteer who did the slightest bit of work to make everything possible, the sentiment that everyone involved put in every activity we did is the real proof of how worthwhile this programme is. Other proof is the fact that no matter how much time passes a CFP teen will describe the experience of being one with exactly the same enthusiasm everytime. We did peace building work, we got to know each other, we acquired knowledge, had so much fun, traveled to a foreign country where we were taken care of by lovely people with which we exchange emails, skype calls and make plans to visit each other's countries and we became more sensitive to issues that exist in our life as Cypriots and as people. Through this review I'll take the chance to say thank you to every one who donated a single penny that contributed in getting me on a plane with those people to that place. I hope you see this because I am truly grateful for giving me the chance to live all that I lived through CFP. I now have great people as friends, great relationships tying me to a place so far away, and a much greater view on who I want to be as a person. Thank you, and I hope that anyone considering donating to this programme will make the decision to do it but not just that, watch it grow and stay close to it to see the amazing effects it has on the lives of people.

My son had the opportunity last year to be hosted by an exceptional family in New Hampshire with a Turkish- speaking Cypriot. The two boys bonded over the month August and learned the values of peaceful co-existence and friendship. My son returned mature and capable of constructing a future without conflict. the program was very well organized and even though i was quite concerned with the idea of my child being away with some strangers for a month, he became close to the host family and gained a lot from their lifestyle.
