CDI was created by a group of creative, motivated and committed young professionals from around the world and aims to build strong and sustainable urban and rural communities in both the worst off developing countries throughout the world and in disadvantaged local communities in the developed world. CDI implements innovative projects and programs, following the Millenium Development Goals and within CDI's six core inter-related focal areas; Education, Health, Agriculture, Energy, Eco-Enterprise and Environmental Protection. The process CDI follows is to identify communities that can benefit from our assistance, begin by working with local community leaders and inhabitants to establish interest in receiving assistance from CDI, researching the needs and demographic information of the area, devising a detailed and targeted step by step plan to implement sustainable projects and programs within the six core focal areas, execute the projects and programs, empower local inhabitants, monitor the effects and management for a provisional period to ensure success and ultimately leave the community in the hands of its inhabitants with a new sense of pride, ownership and empowerment. The individual program process varies widely as per location and is dependent on the location's particular needs, existing infrastructure and the individual geographical, medical, social and political conditions from area to area.
CDI hosts regular events including film screenings, social events, fundraisers etc in the metro New York City area and is looking to expand to other metro areas internationally.
Currently CDI is looking for other NYC young professionals who share our mission and vision to become CDI team members! Please check our website for details and email us at email@example.com!
