  • CIDA is transforming hundreds of young people into Africa's future leaders 
How can you help:

Support CIDA Foundation UK's Fundraising Gala Dinner on Tuesday May 17th in central London 

It costs just £4,000 a year to support a student's tuition and living costs. Find out about the different ways you could get involved. 

Whether you want to give £5 a month or fund a student residence, CIDA needs your help. Find out how you can get involved-every donation counts! 

CIDA is an exciting, innovative concept that is well aligned with companies who want to help change lives in Africa by investing in education.  

Both CIDA Foundation UK and CIDA City Campus sometimes have a specific need for volunteers. Find out what we need here.
