We actively aim at contributing to the development of modernised and prosperous Muslim societies around the globe that are led by visionary and ethical leaders, adding positive value to mankind.
Since its shift in focus in 2003 IFID's mission has been centred around building the capacities and empowering young Muslim social actors with MENA focus who are being equipped intellectually and practically to appreciate the complexity of modern social dynamics to effectively lead CS initiatives that promote social innovation in a critical moment of the Middle East history.
