IFPD foundation

We promote social entrepreneurship to foster sustainable social and economic integration


Created in 1999 and based in Geneva, the International Foundation for Population and Development (IFPD) is recognized as a not-for-profit organization. Our main mission is to address social marginalization, and contribute to the autonomy of vulnerable people through the implementation of vocational training and entrepreneurship programs. In collaboration with local NGOs as well as private, public and academic actors, we operate in India, Nepal, Brazil and Switzerland.

We are in line with the Sustainable Development Goals defined by the UN

IFPD’s action is fully in line with the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the UN in 2015. The Foundation encourages access to employment and income generation; its programs promote economic growth and social inclusion through vocational training and entrepreneurship.

We are dedicated to creating a lasting impact through our actions.
