The Foundation for Sustainable Development (FSD) is a grassroots organization functioning in various states including Tamilnadu, Kerala, Karnataka, AndhraPradesh, Telangana and Odisha for the rights and development of the scheduled tribecommunities with primary focus on theempowerment of women and young girls. Our motto is to empower the most marginalized tribal women with rights perspective by listening to them with the aim of understanding the context of their specific condition and situation and facilitating to achieve socio--‐economic, educational, health and gender equality in the society.

 

 

We are organising 16-days Campaign from 25th Nov-Dec 10: This is a Peoples Voice to prevent violence on vulnerable women that is an on-going programme organised by FSD-Australian Aid. It is a process of empowering women to participate fully in socio-economic life across all sectors which is very essential for building stronger voice for economies, achieve equality, and fulfil the internationally agreed goals for development and sustainability, and improve the quality of life for women, their
children, men, families, and communities.

 

One of the critical aspects of social empowerment of women is the promotion of gender equality. Gender equality implies a society in which women and men enjoy the same opportunities, same space, equal opportunities and outcomes, rights and obligations in all spheres of life.

 

The another areas is empowering women through educational development and achieve the power knowledge, skills, capacity and self-confidence necessary to participate fully in the development process. It means making women aware of their rights and developing a confidence to claim them through legal applications and approaches. We are working with vulnerable women and with adolescent girls for their rights with their active participation in democratic function to reach the goals of preamble of the constitutional rights.
