Who We Are The Foundation for Sustainable Development (FSD) envisions a world where all people have the opportunity and capacity to direct economic, social, and environmental resources toward sustainable outcomes that improve their lives and communities. FSD's mission is to achieve community-driven goals through asset-based development and international exchange in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
What We Do FSD invests in hundreds of grassroots partners around the world who are working on the frontlines 365 days a year to change the lives for people in their communities. We provide our partners with grants and key training to ensure their goals are practical, sustainable, and minimize external aid dependency.
We also work with students, professionals, and donors from the US and other countries to share knowledge on ethical approaches to international development, which respect and preserve the voice, knowledge, and culture of the communities we serve.
