Mission and Strategy

DSCF0098 - Copy









The Center for International Study and Development provides educational and developmental opportunities to the most vulnerable populations: tribal-nomadic and indigenous peoples around the world. We wish to empower them to improve their lives and their communities, so that one day they may live as educated, healthy, and developed societies within the global community.

Our Strategy

Our projects are organized around twelve pillars of development, which we support depending on the specific requirements of the location. We believe that these areas are the vital foundations for a society to grow, and that each issue needs to be addressed comprehensively to bring lasting change.  We address issues specific to each community we serve, working directly with tribal, nomadic, and indigenous people to tackle the problems they face on a daily basis.
