Join the fight against poverty as a volunteer in Africa or India!

Are you ready for big challenges?Volunteer in Africa. Join the program "fighting with the poor" at CICD in England
Would you like to take action together with others to make the world a better place?
Do you want to learn about life in Africa and India by investigation and own experience?

We invite you to join us!

At CICD in England we - staff and students – place ourselves shoulder to shoulder with The Poor to make changes for the better. We find that to maintain our integrity and humanity and enjoy life to the full we need to face reality and work for a better future for all.

Here are a few of the facts that make us do what we do:
- 22,000 children die each day due to poverty
- 1 billion people entered the 21st century unable to read and write
- 25 million people in Southern Africa are infected with HIV
- More than half of Africa’s population live on less than a dollar a day

These are just figures - and there are many more. But behind these figures are human beings. Each of the 22,000 children had a face and a name, and each of them is mourned. Each of The Poor in these figures have been denied basic human rights.

By becoming a volunteer in Africa you get a new understanding of the world  - and you do good at the same time! Together we can create change and a better world.
