Foundation For Sustainable Development

About Foundation For Sustainable Development

Foundation for Sustainable Development achieves community-driven goals through asset-based development & international exchange in Africa, Asia, & Latin America.

The power to end poverty and achieve sustainable prosperity is in people. Every person can make a difference. Every person is powerful and has something to contribute. When people work together they are even more powerful. We are committed to uniting people for the common good.

Our approach focuses on mobilizing resources—human, economic, and natural—for sustainable, life-changing initiatives. We use an asset-based community development approach that encourages self-reliance and inspires appreciation of existing resources in the community and the confidence to build upon them. We constantly challenge ourselves and others to do more with what we have. We believe that with an attitude of resourcefulness, positive change is possible even in low-resource settings.

“I liked the independence the independence the position provided; the ability to work from home. My Supervisor was very easy to communicate with and I learned a lot from him. I also enjoyed the fact that I got to participate in Staff Meeting as they were very insightful.”
