OUR STORY

 

 

Foundation for Sustainable Community Based Development (FSD/ Uganda) is a former Site Team for the Foundation for Sustainable Development- in San Francisco USA (FSD-USA).  Founded by Dr. Alicia Robb in 1995 (see founder’s story), FSD-USA supported global service learning programs to grassroot local communities in Africa, Latin America and India for over 22 years (1995-2018). The Uganda site team was opened in 2007 and has been vibrant under the mentorship of FSD-USA for the last 11years.   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 respective countries.   FSD Uganda site team then evolved into the Foundation for Sustainable Community Based Development.  FSD Uganda is registered as a corporate non-profit development organization in Uganda (No.80020001393211). FSD Uganda is committed to continue the FSD-USA development model to provide volunteer opportunities for professionals and students of all skill levels who are interested in supporting grassroot and international development; And to support locally managed grassroot organizations that are working to improve the welfare of marginalized communities in Uganda.
