The World Versus the Developing World!
Currently our world contains 195 countries with a total
population of over 7 billion Men, Women & Children. Within this
number 45% of total wealth being controlled by 1% of the
Then the East, West divide. 24 Western Countries contain a mere
20% of the worlds population, whilst able to access clean drinking
water, health care, full education, etc. Whereas for the remaining
80% the story remains so different. Within the UK 50% of wealth is
controlled by 10% of the population.
- Surely children desperate to learn and teachers desperate to
teach deserve better! Hence the development of "African Schools on
Line" in 1995 & "Streamline" in 2013 and more recently

People we encounter
Computers remain a key part of the CfC's activities.
However, our core activity is working with people either directly
through the organisations and projects we support or within the
From workers in Romania, School children in Zimbabwe, Migrants
in Calais, Offenders in Prison or the caller today making a general
enquiry. Our slogan aptly describes the organisations ethos "
Passionate about People". Our aim being to offer security,
acceptance and dignity to all those we encounter.
Sadly capacity limits what can ideally be offered, however
whatever the circumstances we try to give every one a chance.
- Some successes and some failures
Bob - Sussex
Bob is one such fellow. He was referred originally to us by a
local agency and attends of his own choosing, being around 12
months... His schooling was undertaken at a school for children
with special needs, there he was bullied to the extent of bricks
thrown at him. As with all new volunteers, we ask that they write a
short life history to help us get to know them better.
Bob has mental health issues, which have not made it easy to get
a job. Still living at home, but then so is his older brother with
parents now well into their 70's.
Bob writes about his volunteering at CfC. Saying " I like
the fact I can get up in the morning and go to work like everyone
else in this world. I am allowed to function as an individual and
have found a new confidence and the ability to work with others. I
used to be shy and was bullied, I wouldn't say boo to
Nowadays its the opposite and a real job to stop him jabbering.
Sadly for people like Bob, the outside world is not so caring and a
lot more demanding.
