SCIAF is the Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund, the official aid and international development charity of the Catholic Church in Scotland. We work in over 16 countries across Asia, Africa and Latin America, to help some of the poorest people in the world, regardless of religion, to work their way out of poverty.
Set up after the Make Poverty History march in Edinburgh during the 2005 G20 meeting, the festival aims to
1. raise the profile of international justice and development issues;
2. provide an annual ‘shop window’ to the public; and
3. be a platform for co-operation and debate for the world justice movement in Edinburgh.
It puts together the programme of the festival which in 2014 is from 04 – 11 October, organising some key events, and co-ordinating all the other events which are put on by supporting organisations
