Areas of Focus – An Overview

FCDE works in seven interrelated fields to facilitate a holistic approach to community development. Each of FCDE’s focus areas has a direct relationship to the well-being of members within a community. By focusing on a wide swath of program areas FCDE works to increase an entire community’s ability to address underlying development needs. Increasing the capacity of multiple organizations and encouraging them to work together more closely allows productive synergies to arise.

FCDE supports organizations that work in the fields of small business development/social entrepreneurship, women’s empowerment, social justice, health, HIV/AIDS, youth development & education and the environment. Each of our partner organizations work in one or more of these fields. You can read more about each partner organization’s approach to work in these program areas in the local partner section.
