Who we are

IECD is a development assistance organisation, which intervenes in 14 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, the MENA region, the Indian Ocean and Southeast Asia.

For the past 33 years, IECD has pursued it mission in the field to sow seeds of hope. As entrepreneurs of human and economic development, along with our local partners, we build favourable environments to allow each person to bring their talents to light. IECD’s ambition is to give to their beneficiaries the knowledge that they need to improve their living conditions, become responsible actors in their country and to contribute to a more equitable society.

Since its creation in 1988, IECD has developed recognized expertise in four key areas: Education, Vocational Training and Youth Employability, and Support to Small Enterprises. In the same time, we are involved in a fight that is close to our heart : the sickle cell disease.
