Our Mission

Strategies for International Development (SID) works to eliminate rural poverty and build democratic practice in developing countries.

We help poor farmers take firmer charge of their businesses, connect with markets, increase productivity and income, and reclaim natural resources.  We help rural residents select and supervise public works and services, and we help local officials provide these services.  read more...

What makes SID different?

In addition to demonstrating innovations, we work to lift up the entire development sector. We help NGOs improve the impact and coverage of their projects; we work with local governments to improve their citizen participation and decision making; and we promote best practices, strategies, and results..
