Islamic Solidarity Fund for Development

Background

The decision to establish the ISFD was taken at the 3rd Extraordinary Session OIC Summit held in Makkah Al Mukarramah, in Dhul Qadah 1426H (December 2005). The Islamic Solidarity Fund for Development (ISFD) is the poverty alleviation arm of the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) Group. It is a primary vehicle for the following activities in IDB Member Countries:

  • Fighting poverty & hunger and promoting pro-poor growth;
  • Providing financial support to enhance the productive capacity and sustainable means of income generation for the poor;
  • Emphasising human development, especially reducing illiteracy and eradicating diseases/epidemics

Objectives

The Fund’s priorities include:

  • Human development (education, health, water and sanitation);
  • Agricultural and rural development;
  • Basic rural infrastructure development;
  • Capacity building;
  • Women’s empowerment.

What we do

Selected ISFD Programmes

The Alliance to Fight Avoidable Blindness (AFAB)
The ISFD and the IDB group formed AFAB with more than 30 NGOs and governments, to provide the ‘Gift of Sight’. This removes suffering due to blindness and poor vision, restoring hope to these people to break out of poverty. This year, AFAB has already raised US$ 35m, which will save hundreds of thousands of people their eyesight.

Global Sadaqah is the official Crowdfunding partner of the AFAB. Every donation made on Global Sadaqah will be matched dollar-to-dollar by the AFAB. See campaigns **_[link to AFAB campaigns]._**

Microfinance Support Programme (MFSP)
The main objective of the MFSP is to fight poverty by promoting access of the economically active poor to financial resources and capacity development as a means to reduce vulnerability, create employment opportunities and improve living conditions of the poor.

Vocational Literacy Programme (VOLIP)
The main objective of the Vocational Literacy Programme (VOLIP) is to reduce poverty in the rural populations, particularly among women, by equipping them with relevant functional literacy competencies and notional skills, and by giving them access to microfinance funding to facilitate their own development.

Sustainable Villages Programme (SVP)
The primary objective of the SVP is to reduce extreme poverty in the selected cluster of villages in the poorest IDB Member Countries, utilising low-cost, sustainable, community-driven, high-impact multi-sector development interventions that are tailored to the villages’ specific needs and designed to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
