About the Hosts
The Columbus International Program (CIP) is a member based non-profit organization dedicated to Promoting International Understanding through Intercultural Exchange. For over 38 years we have provided opportunities for international professionals to come to Central Ohio for practical training experiences in their industry, professional development and cross-cultural exchange. Since its inception, CIP has hosted over 800 international specialists from 112 countries.
Kiwanis Club of Columbus is a global organization of member-volunteers working to change the world, one child and one community at a time. With the Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF has joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT), which causes 90,000 deaths each year. To eliminate MNT across the world by 2015, our organizations are raising $110 million to supply vaccines, syringes and thousands of skilled staff across the world.
