We give both technical and non-technical support to deprived communities and organizations. Our objective is to stimulate local development initiatives for vulnerable people in desperate situations. We aim to promote individual, community, and environmental and sociological empowerment by educating using an inclusive, multicultural mentality. We address all races, religions and sexes equally, and try to strengthen the human bond through creating friendship and understanding of each other. We believe our unique approach begins a peaceful, respectful and loving attitude, which will benefit the people’s rights, the people’s self-belief and the people’s progression. VICDK It is managed by a board of directors who are experienced in the areas of social work, education, business management, finance and accounting, psychology, environmental health,counseling,community development and law among others.
The overall goal of this organization is to show people that development is brought by the people themselves. Through maximum utilization of the available local resources.
We understand that change and aid agent’s only play a catalytic role towards community development and that progressive development of society stems from active, village and people founded actions.
We strive to educate and promote individuals to increase achievement and their improve situations.
Every year VICDK deploys development personnel, technical, non-technical, volunteers recruited from regions all over the world, into local communities, in a variety of different projects, and programmes which will be specifically designed to develop specialist and non-specialist tasks for enhancing self-confidence, self-reliance, pride and dignity.
