CRED History

History of CRED

  • Established as a trust on 3rd November 1997.
  • Phase 1 – getting the development agenda into the classroom of UK schools – striving to ensure that this agenda was included as part of the school curriculum.
  • Phase 2 – taking the classroom out into the developing world – running trips with students from UK schools to visit and participate with some of our partner projects.
  • Phase 3 – awareness-raising, specialised assistance, context-sensitive advocacy, open access to financial donations for the partners and facilitating long-term relationship between partner and donor.

Our invitation to you is to join us on this journey…
