Service Civil International (SCI) is one of the world’s largest international volunteering organizations dedicated to promoting a culture of peace and fostering participation through the organization and coordination of voluntary projects all over the world since 1920. The organization consists of 42 branches and an ever growing number of partner organisations.

SCI is open to all and it’s projects have demonstrated to be an effective way of helping to break down barriers and prejudices between people of different backgrounds and to promote a culture of peace and intercultural understanding.

SCI’s vision is a world of peace; social justice and sustainable development, where all people live together with mutual respect and without recourse to any form of violence to solve conflict. SCI’s mission is to promote a culture of peace by organising international volunteering projects with local and global impact.

Through this blog we hope to gather volunteer stories from around the world, to inspire and to activate you in volunteering for peace, in building bridges and empowering yourself and local communities!
