A-4. The history of LMTV in Asia and Europe
Development of Long Term Activities
Service Civil International (SCI) was founded in 1920 with the main purpose of providing direct relief work after natural disasters and war. In the first few decades of SCI many volunteers worked for periods of several months. As SCI grew bigger and involved more volunteers, the emphasis changed to providing summer work for volunteers on 2-4 week projects. By the 1970s and 1980s, there were very few longer term activities.
