- How do I join?
So... you've had a look around this web site. If you would like some more information you are very welcome to contact us.
Call or text us on WhatsApp +44 7813 854 298 and we are ready to answer your questions.
- Are there any age limits for participating?
You must be at least 18 years old to enroll. There is no upper age limit.
- I am very bad at languages, can I manage with English at the projects?
Maybe! In Malawi, Namibia and India, you can get by with speaking English…but it is always a big advantage for you that you to learn as much as you can of the local language or dialect. If you want to go to Mozambique, Angola or Guinea-Bissau, you must be able to understand and speak Portuguese.
- Do I need to speak English to start the programme?
You need to speak English fairly well to start. It is a very intensive course, with all educational materials and lessons and courses in English. Communication difficulties will set you back.
- How can I join an info meeting or a preparatory weekend?
Contact us for more information about how to speak with one of our representatives, or one of our students or teachers! At the moment we use WhatsApp, Skype and Zoom for our meetings. Under normal circumstances we have Information Meetings in different countries in Europe, and you will also be welcome to visit us for a couple of days here at CICD. But obviously now the Covid19 pandemic has made us change to online meetings.
- What kind of people join the programme?
Development Instructors are from 18-72 years, from different countries and have very different backgrounds. Some participants come directly from high school and others have may have been university lecturers or business managers…
But all of us at CICD have one thing in common: We believe in the fact that we can make a difference - if we join hands in our endeavour to fullfill our dreams.
