Every year a new committee runs the Cambridge Development Initiative (CDI). This provides an unparalleled opportunity for students to oversee an entire organisation and manage a team of over 30 volunteers while implementing hands-on, community-based development projects. CDI’s founders and its Board of Trustees support the student committee to ensure that the committee is equipped with the knowledge and skills to run the organisation successfully. Each position’s predecessor is also available for advice and support throughout the year.
CDI has blossomed over the last five years and is now at a crucial stage of development. The next student committee will have an invaluable opportunity to take CDI forward regarding its long-term strategising, project continuation and sustainability, the emergence of a global student network focused on development initiatives and furthering the collaboration between CDI UK and its Tanzanian partner, KITE Dar es Salaam (KITE DSM). As a member of the CDI executive committee, you will have the opportunity to grow as a young leader, visionary, and practitioner in sustainable development.
