Would you like to take action together with others to make the world a better place, fight climate change and be part of building a sustainable future?
Do you want to learn about life in other parts of the world through your own experiences?

5 reasons to join CICD!

  • To learn about the world and get a new perspective
  • To live in community and make many new friends
  • To do good and be part of changing the world
  • To learn many new skills
  • To challenge yourself and your boundaries

Dream …. develop …. do!

Join CICD and become an activist for a better world!

By working together with our partners Humana People to People and the local population in countries like Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique, Guinea Bissau or India you can help to create change and get a new understanding and perspective of the world we live in.
But as Covid19 keeps causing utter devastation all over the world, our volunteering teams for India or countries in Africa will need to wait until mid 2022 to travel.
For now our focus is to work for sustainability and solidarity with people in need around our “local area” - in England and Europe. Watch this space for news about our new projects coming up!

Together we can create a better future.

    Most important of all for me: the acceptance that no one is perfect and the important thing is that you give the best of you.

    Adapting to CICD meant motivating students, communicating in a different language, and leaving the comfort of my old life.

    In CICD I had grown and changed a lot. I had to adapt, be tolerant, respect others and most importantly, be humble.

    We could get a little piece of African reality as we went to our project. We could taste the bitterness of poverty and we were able to do our part making the world a better place to live.
