What is the SCI?
Service Civil International (SCI) is a peace and voluntary service organisation with more than 45 branches and groups world-wide. The aims are to promote peace, international understanding and solidarity, social justice, sustainable development, and respect for the environment. SCI believes that all people are capable of living together with mutual respect and without recourse to any form of violence to solve conflicts. The organisation was founded one hundred years ago in 1920. The German branch of SCI was founded in 1946.
In co-operation with social, ecological, cultural and anti-racist projects SCI-Germany organises 40 to 50 workcamps every year. Workcamps are short term voluntary projects that are organised in cooperation with local communities. A short term voluntary project is a unique form of volunteering, bringing together people from different countries, cultures and backgrounds to live and work together with local communities for a period of two to three weeks.
Apart from workcamps we also organise trainings and seminars in cooperation with international partners on topics like gender, peace education, anti-racism, etc. Another part of the work of SCI Germany is the exchange of long-term-volunteers.
For more information on the history, aims and international structures of SCI visit the website of SCI Germany or SCI International or of the branch in your home country.
