CIPUSA program alum, Marilda Rezende enjoyed her training program so much that she now is trying to start a CIF branch in Brazil! She has also been busy recruiting social workers to train in our programs as well as CIF programs.  To help garner interest, she wrote an article in "Jornal da Ame" in August 2014 about CIPUSA and CIF.  Click here to view the article and go to page 3.  (note: the article is in Portuguese)

We are saddened to announce that advisory board member and longtime CIPUSA advocate and friend Seth Taft passed away on Sunday, April 14, 2013 at his home. 

CIPUSA President & CEO Lisa Purdy remembers Mr. Taft not only as a benefactor and one of the most influential figures in the organizations history, but also as a mentor: "Seth was a devoted board member to the Cleveland International Program as well as CIPUSA. I will never forget his wonderful spirit and positive outlook on life. He was an ambassador to the world. I learned a lot from him as a young nonprofit manager. He will truly be missed."
Mr. Taft's obituary can be found here.
