SD France

Susila Dharma France Entraide or SDFE was created in 1985 to implement the humanitarian initiatives of its members by supporting existing projects or individual endeavours. The word ‘Entraide’ (mutual aid) emphasizes actions that are not one-way, as SDFE works in a spirit of development, not charity.
SDFE’s ethos is based on the principle of helping people to realize the projects that will improve their own lives; an essential point is that a project is rooted in the community that it is serving, because the community then has ownership of the project. An example is the Community Health Centres or CSCOMs, which have been supported by SDFE from the start. Four are now operating in the DR Congo, and the community is deeply involved in the management and operations.
