Partners for a Better World
Join SCIC as people all over Saskatchewan celebrate International Development Week 2018, an annual celebration connecting Canadians to meaningful global citizenship activities.
This is a time to join together with our local and global communities to celebrate the great work being done, to learn about new and innovative ways to tackle global challenges, and to inspire one another as we continue to build a just and peaceful world.
