SIDA (Sustainable Integrated Development Association) was seeded in 2019, with an intent to create safe spaces for adolescents and youth from the most disadvantaged groups to bring about change within themselves and the society around them. Our current education system talks about equipping youth with vocational skills to foster employment however it does not prepare them adequately with skills to navigate their life in the long run. SIDA realize the importance of channelizing potential of youth and invest adequately on education, health, livelihood and development through lifelong learning processes. Youth and young adults are viewed through various lenses in our society hence SIDA works with adolescent girls from Tharu tribes and youth from diverse backgrounds to build their capacity and enable them to act as a change agent to demonstrate harmony, empathy, social responsibilities and encourage others to follow them.
WHAT WE DO
SIDA was established with a commitment of touching the heart of 1 billion people mostly from the most disadvantaged, socially excluded and less fortunate people through education, food, health, shelter and livelihood. Our works are well-researched and planned with a focus on generating and sharing knowledge with diverse stakeholders to attain sustainable impacts.
