Breaking Down Barriers - Memories of Volunteers with SCI

Description

Recently, in 2006, a few long-term SCI volunteers from three continents met again after, in some instances, as many as 45 years. They found that, despite very different origins and pathways, their SCI experience had had a decisive impact on their life and outlook, with many of the same values and ideals still enduring. That gathering formed the genesis of this book.

Taken together these stories represent a significant contribution to the history of SCI and, more generally, document the commitment, voluntary spirit and idealism of young people of that generation. They can provide useful food for thought to those who are volunteers today

The contribution were printed as book in 2009 but distributed only among the contributors. Since April 2010 they are included in the website of SCI Archives (French Version).
