our mission

To create a world where no woman suffers from violence or is forced to live a life of poverty.

As a Finnish NGO, the International Solidarity Foundation has made a lasting impact in the lives of women, men, and entire communities for over 50 years now. We have specialized know-how in how to work with delicate issues in even very fragile communities. Over 85 000 people benefit from our work.

ISF works especially in two strands: empowering women against gender-based violence, female genital mutilation as well as promoting livelihoods.
