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 - possibly until 2023 - to travel to these projects.
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.

Students Testimonials - Why I joined and what I learned



    CICD has been a great learning experience for me. I learned so much in these 2 years that it surprises even me how greatly I have changed.


    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.


    The slogan of the college is “let’s act”, and I’m very happy because I could do exactly that. And you, what are you waiting for?


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


    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.


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