Together, a better world is possible.

SCIC helps Saskatchewan people act on their desire to make the world a better place. We do this by educating Saskatchewan people about global issues like poverty, health, and human rights, and encouraging individuals to take meaningful action. SCIC – or the Saskatchewan Council for International Cooperation – also distributes funding to our member organizations who work on overseas projects to reduce poverty and improve people’s lives.  At its core, SCIC is a partnership of organizations doing international development work.
