Working together.
Building collective power.

The Foundation for Community Development and Empowerment strengthens the capacity of local organizations leading community-driven change in rural East Africa.

How We Do It

Locally led development uplifts communities.

Emerging evidence continues to reinforce what FCDE knows well: organizations close to the community are best positioned to address complex issues and achieve sustainable change. This is especially clear in rural areas beyond the reach of government services, where local organizations often serve as community lifelines.

FCDE provides the training, networks, and resources for these organizations to be self-sustaining and achieve their vision of systemic, community-level change.
