CWY alumni gather in Indonesia to celebrate 40 years of programs

Over 100 CWY alumni gathered in Indonesia on December 19 for a gala to celebrate 40 years of programs between Indonesia and Canada! Current world events show us that improving communication and understanding between people of different countries, religions and backgrounds is more important than ever. CWY youth exchanges do just that! Our volunteers transform into global citizens who participate actively in the development of just, harmonious, and sustainable societies. Congratulations to all those that took part, including his Excellency Donald Bobiash, Canadian Ambassador to Indonesia.
