Institute For International Cooperation and Development (IICD) michigan was incorporated in 1997 as a Non-for Profit educational organization in the state of Michigan. IICD is an independent non profit.
Any education must prepare the students for the future. If it does not, the students are cheated and have wasted time and money.
In a time, considered by many to be characterized by fatal decisions and events, that may hit the whole globe across all known borders, it is dawning on more and more people, that life on the planet, as we know it, will undergo dramatic changes in the decades to come. The changes, we have experienced in the past decades will be minor compared to those of the future. The generations growing up today will be around in the year 2050, they need to be prepared to act in the present and the future.
The world will be faced with the challenge of transforming our societies away from dependency on fossil fuels, dealing with the food crises following in the wake, coping with increased number of natural disasters and the effects of global warming, the widening gap between rich and poor, resolving the political, economical, human and social crises that potentially could become very ugly.
IICD Michigan offers two programs: 18 months "Fighting with the Poor" Program with the opportunity of getting a B- Degree in fighting with the poor by One world Univerity (OWU) in Mozambique.
And the Faculty of Pedagogical Sience (Teacher Training) with the opportunity of getting a Licenciate degree from OWU in Mozambique
