5 months: Studies, training and actions based at CICD

In the first five months of the programme you will immerse yourself into the many aspects of our fast changing world.

You will dig deep into the driving forces of development, into how past events have influenced the political, economic and human landscape of our world today. You will get to know about what this means for The Poor - in the project country and also here in England.
During the first five months, you will also be part of the international community at CICD, running the school together with the rest of us. This is an important part of your training, and includes everything from food shopping and cooking and cleaning to planning & organising one of our monthly Building Weelkends of maintenance tasks for students and teachers!

6 months: Volunteering in Africa and India

This period takes place at one of Humana People to People’s development projects in Africa or India. You fly to the country, where you are going to spend the next 6 months together with your trio volunteering at a development project. You had your job description before you left from CICD and have also been in contact with your Project Leader, so after maybe a few days at the National Headquarter of Humana People to People in the country, you move on to your project and get started.

1 month: Bringing It to the Public

This period is a very important part of the programme. It gives you time to reflect and conclude on your experiences and achievements and to share them widely. You have started preparing this during the first 5 months of your stay at CICD, so you already have the outline of a plan. Reach as many people as you can – it is important that lots of people are educated about the fight against poverty.
