Many people ask about taking their children on assignment. Geoff Ripat and Jill Cooper have recently returned from Bolivia. They left 4 year and 7 months ago with their two lovely children. Maureen was 6 when she left and is 11 now. She speaks beautiful Spanish. Maureen was 6 when she left. She talks about friends and how much she misses Bolivia in English and Spanish. Sam Ripat was 3 when he left Canada and is now 8 years old. He too met good friends and can speak Spanish. CUSO-VSO has sent over 12,000 people overseas including families in the last 48 years. After meeting many alumni and their children I think this work has changed families, from language to having a more compassionate view of people around the world. Thanks Maureen and Sam . It was so good to meet you.
