Our Projects

Since its inception, IFPD has promoted gender equality and the empowerment of women and youth, especially girls and young women. It has adopted an integrated community based approach in which activities in the areas of health, education, income generation and livelihood enhancement strengthen each other’s impact on poverty reduction.

IFPD’s programmes and projects are developed on this overall concept but take into account national and local conditions. In all projects, the active participation of the local population, beneficiaries and other stakeholders is encouraged.

To this day, IFPD has supported projects in Mali (Ségou), India (Mumbai, Delhi and Bodhgaya) and Nepal (Kathmandu). It will be implementing a new project in Brazil in 2017.
