IFPD Foundation

Promoting social entrepreneurship to foster sustainable social and economic integration for precarious communities.

With 25 years of experience, the International Foundation for Population and Development (IFPD) is a not-for-profit organization based in Geneva. Founded in 1999, our primary mission is to contribute to the autonomy of vulnerable people by implementing vocational training, professional integration, and entrepreneurship programs.

We collaborate with local NGOs, as well as private, public, and academic actors, to maximize our impact. Our operations span India, Nepal, Brazil, and Switzerland, where we work to provide sustainable economic opportunities and promote the integration and independence of disadvantaged communities.

Through strategic partnerships and a beneficiary-focused approach, IFPD plays a crucial role in international development and supporting vulnerable populations.

IFPD strongly aligns with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals by advocating for access to employment and income generation through vocational training and entrepreneurship, thereby fostering economic growth and social inclusion.
