FIIDI-Canada is a registered charitable organization in Alberta, Canada and affiliated with the Foundation for Intercultural and Interreligious Dialogue Initiatives (FIIDI) – a non-profit, non-religious, non-partisan and non-political community-based organization working in Port Loko District of Sierra Leone, and Foyer pour les Initiatives de Dialogue Interculturel et Interreligieux (FIIDI) – a civil society organization working in Burkina Faso. Each organization operates independently but the vision and mission remain the same.

Centre for Faith and Community Development (CFCD), formerly New Era Educational and Charitable Support Initiative (NEEDCSI), is a Nigeria-based nonprofit organization, founded in 2007. CFCD holds Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (UN ECOSOC), and works to strengthen communities by building relationships between faith-based organizations and local communities. We believe that collaboration between these groups is the key to creating positive change in our neighborhoods. The Centre recognizes that faith and spirituality can inspire and empower individuals to become agents of change, leading to the creation of just and compassionate societies.
