For Community-Driven Global Development

Human Rights with FSD

The Foundation for Sustainable Development works in accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to protect and promote civil, political, and socioeconomic rights for marginalized people in our partner communities.

These rights are frequently excluded from underserved communities in the developing world due to race, gender, religion, and—most commonly—the pursuit of economic gain.

We work at the local level with locally-led grassroots organizations dedicated to preventing and ending human rights violations that drastically affect the men, women, and children in their community. Together, we provide a platform for communities and individuals to understand their rights, voice their plight, and take effective action.

Interns, volunteers, and giving circle members work together with FSD to address a wide spectrum of rights issues that cause and exacerbate poverty. These include: direct legal counseling; intra-familial violence prevention; publications and advocacy campaigns; conflict resolution; rights education workshops; child labor prevention; migratory labor protection; and many more.
