Sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) is defined as any act committed against a person’s will that is based on gender norms and unequal power dynamics. It involves physical, mental, or psychological abuse, as well as sexual violence, as well as denial of resources or access to services. SGBV causes harm to women, girls, men, and boys and is a serious violation of several human rights.
At FISD, we aim at building the capacity of local organizations through the Alcohol, Drugs and Development (ADD) programme. Through the ADD programme, we facilitate the lobbying and advocacy for, and engage in activism to, crystallize the political will of the government for the reduction of harm caused by alcohol, tobacco, and drugs.
Children are today’s citizens, but if we want to guarantee that their future is one that is full of opportunity and optimism, we must work actively in the present to defend them and their rights. To grow up healthy, children need the right amount of love, care, education, and protection. Healthy communities result in thriving societies.
Through multitudes of projects, FISD forges diverse pathways toward positive change. Each endeavor represents a unique thread in the fabric of transformation, weaving together hope, opportunity, and progress for individuals and communities.
