What are Our Unique USPs? (Unique Selling Points)

  • We work directly with people and organisations, avoiding unnecessary expenses and bureaucracy.
  • We consult with local people to advise us on what needs to be done at their particular project.
  • We take into account the environmental impact of our work and plant trees to reduce CO2 emissions.
  • We encourage people to help themselves by providing practical, sustainable self-help projects.
  • Because we are all professional volunteers, with low overheads so your money goes where it is needed.
  • We encourage volunteers to fundraise by recycling when possible. (eg. second-hand books, clothes, auctions etc.)

Who We Are

The Trustees of CDUK are professional volunteers, experienced in their field.  Weare able to complete projects at a fraction of the costs of some larger charities.

How We Operate

We built and equipped a Woman & Child Development Centre for £10,000, which included running it, employing visiting psychologists, educationalists, social workers, and lawyers to assist in client development. The centre was run for a year before it was taken over by the government, which was our aim.  All this was possible because one of our volunteer Trustees worked directly with the people in the shantytown.  We provided the money and under our supervision, with consultation and cooperation, they provided the labour free.

“Why should I care about supporting children abroad? Do we not have enough problems of our own to deal with in the UK?”


CDUK’s strapline is “Earth is the Home we Share” and this phrase underpins all our work.  

We believe that everyone on this planet is interdependent and that we are all in some way interrelated. We live in a global economy, we eat foods from all over the world, we export and import goods and services, sea and air pollution are blown by winds, spread by tides, climate change and environmental degradation is a global challenge for us all, so in a nutshell:
Global challenges require global solutions, they require educated minds from all over the world to come together to make the vital decisions that are needed to sustainably maintain our planet for future generations.

Imagine that maybe one of the children from one of CDUK’s international projects, e.g. the Kyebi Primary School in Ghana which our supporters funded, maybe will become someone who is part of this enormous and vital global decision-making process when they are adult? Imagine the goodwill if that child remembers the assistance that was given at an early age by people in the UK who cared, to their school?  What goes around comes around!

We are all aware of the importance of education in the UK, please help us to facilitate education and environmental sustainability at our projects.
