Your Campus Connection
The project is aiming to expose its participants and local community to people from different cultural, religious, geographic and socio-economic backgrounds and in so doing provide the opportunity for all to develop a greater understanding of diversity. In the past the program has allowed its participants to learn from people who are different from themselves and integrate in new and unique experiences beyond their own communities. Cultural exchange assists everybody involved to develop positive relationships with others, understand a broader range of perspectives, and develop the knowledge and skills needed for participation in inevitable multicultural society.
Volunteers in this project will participate in a number of activities leading to cultural exposure like Kiswahili Language and cooking classes, home stay, arts and craft, meeting senior citizens for story sharing about the past, visiting cultural sites and ritual sites.

Participating in an international short term volunteer project (so called Workcamp) can be an exciting prospect. It is an interesting and meaningful way to travel with purpose and spend 2-3 weeks in a foreign environment. Working and living together with other volunteers from around the world provides an excellent opportunity to make many new friends, learn about unknown places and culture, gain new skills and experience. Your time, energy, and enthusiasm can make a difference in areas where help is really needed.
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
