Global Social Leaders


Cambridge International Schools Sudan




ü  Number 1: NO POVERTY

ü  Number 2: NO HUNGER




1.      To foster in young people a sense of concern for caring, inclusiveness, Global Citizenship and volunteerism.

2.      To turn young people’s ideas, creativity and passion into concrete intervention through interactive and collaborative community actions.

3.      To connect schools (rich and needy) to develop creative community actions that meet 21st Century community needs.



Our aims will be conveyed through a 12 - 15 week community based volunteer programme focused on engaging young willing volunteers to connect with other young people from different social backgrounds. The projects will provide young people to experience the challenges of making time to positively help, contribute, share, collaborate and then turn their youthful ideas, creativity and passion into concrete intervention through active and responsible community action. They will learn to give something to the needy, share skills and pursue personal interests such as dedicating their lives to the vision and goal of care, creativity and action. Young people will be inspired to gain a greater understanding and respect for everyone in their community and engage in activities that promote principles of inclusiveness (equality), diversity and creation of sustainable connections or relationships. See the breakdown of activities according to selected Global Goal:
