Join the CSDi team and end suffering and poverty for 2,168 human beings

The past two years have been incredible for the Center, but our achievements would not have been possible without your support.

There are only 2 days left to help us reach our year-end goal: providing scholarships to international field staff to help them increase their reach to 200,000 people.


Your donation will help over 2,000 people
$100 provides 2 international front-line staff with scholarships to learn how to launch sustainable projects in some of the world’s most remote villages.
