Foundation for Sustainable Development
FSD is a non-profit organization founded in 1995 to provide volunteer opportunities for professionals who are interested in supporting grassroots, international development. FSD represents a very unique development philosophy that comprehensively trains and enables volunteers to achieve a sustainable impact on the community they work within. Our approach integrates practical solutions with the interior aspects of culture, beliefs, and commonly-held values. By recognizing these forces in-tandem, FSD and its volunteers address grassroots development in a way that can deliver needed resources without imposing, patronizing, or disempowering the communities that open their doors to us. Participants select from over 400 unique opportunities worldwide, to find the work that matches their skills and interests. No matter the opportunity selected, volunteering with FSD will give you insight into sustainable development and ensure that your work makes a lasting impact. You may contact FSD at
