Service Civil International (SCI) is a volunteer organisation dedicated to promoting a culture of peace by organising international voluntary projects for people of all ages and backgrounds. The organization consists of 45 branches and an ever growing number of partner organization.
Throughout the years SCI has made a major contribution to the development of the main forms of volunteering. Year after year, the organization enables thousands of volunteers to participate in community projects.
We believe that living and working together with people of different backgrounds helps volunteers to break down barriers and prejudices. It allows them to experience a world of mutual respect and understanding. In this sense, volunteering can be seen as a way of life, a demonstration of the possible reality of a peaceful and cooperative world.
SCI offers a variety of volunteer opportunities to people, such as short, mid- and long term projects, but also the possibility to become active for a local branch or participate in a seminar or training.
Throughout the years SCI has also organized, coordinated and joined many international campaigns that aim at raising people´s awareness about global and local issues related to peace, migration, climate justice, active citizenship, human rights, development education, volunteering and more. In 2014 we will be working on our latest campaign, Create a Climate for Peace, transforming SCI´s activities into sustainable, climate friendly and just activities for the future.
SCI Bangladesh Branch was established in 1953 to promote volunteerism, peace and youth development through organizing work camp, medical camp, eye camp, weekend camp, issue based work camp, seminar, workshop, blood donation, emergency relief & disaster response and implementing integrated development project in remote areas of Bangladesh.
