OUR STORY

 

 

Foundation for Sustainable Community Based Development (FSD Jinja Uganda) is a former Site Team for the Foundation for Sustainable Development with  San Francisco USA (FSD-USA).  Founded by Dr. Alicia Robb in 1995  (see founder’s story), FSD-USA supported global service-learning programs to grassroots local communities in Africa, Latin America, and India for over 22 years (1995-2018). The Uganda site team opened in 2007 and has effected positive change under the mentorship of FSD-USA for the first 11 years.   In 2018, the FSD-USA Board mandated the international site teams to decentralize and assume autonomous status to carry forward the Vision and Mission of FSD-USA in their respective countries.   FSD Uganda site team then evolved into the Foundation for Sustainable Community Based Development.  FSD Jinja Uganda is registered as a corporate non-profit Non-government organization in Uganda (No.INDR1434722008NB). Since 2018, FSD Jinja Uganda has committed to continuing the FSD-USA development model which provides volunteer and internship opportunities for professionals and students of all skill levels who are interested in supporting grassroots and international development. We support locally managed grassroots organizations working to improve the welfare of marginalized communities in Uganda
