IFPD (International Foundation for Population and Development)
IFPD (International foundation for Population and Development) is a Swiss Foundation created in 1999 and based in Geneva, which actively contributes to the fight against poverty in the most vulnerable communities in the developing countries as well as in Switzerland. The project Helene Watel, highlighted for la Nuit des Neiges 2019, will generate a strong support for the favela of Cantagalo, one of the poorest areas of Rio. This project aims to provide education to the children and teach women how to develop their entrepreunarial skills to escape the poverty and become independant.
