The Foundation for Innovative Social Development is a national nongovernmental organization in Sri Lanka working towards the upliftment of living standards of local communities. We enlist civil society participation and social mobilization in order to enhance the status of women, to build a healthy environment for children, and to create a society free from alcohol, tobacco, and drugs. Today, our organization stands out as a pioneering nongovernmental organization in the field of social development. While development has become a main area of concern for many government and nongovernmental organizations, the main focus at present tends to be on physical and infrastructure development. There are limited expertise and programmers concerning social development, an integral part of improving the quality of life of the people, which in turn is a key aspect of development.
