About Us

FCDF - Family Counseling & Development Foundation is a Yemeni non-governmental organization founded in 2011. It provides psychological and social counseling services to individuals and families with psychological and social problems, including issues related to sexual violence. The Foundation has accumulated extensive experience over the past 3 years, and has contributed more than 5,000 people, including women, men, youth and children, and from all governorates of the Republic of Yemen. As of June 2014, the Foundation has initiated the "Prevention and Treatment of Gender-Based Violence Project", funded by the Government of the Netherlands. The project aims to reduce the negative effects of gender-based violence by providing quality, psychologically and socially integrated preventive services to 20,000 women and children by 2016. Within 18 months, the Foundation provided counseling and psychotherapy to some 30,000 people, mostly women and children under the age of eight 10, most of whom suffered gender-based violence. The Foundation's services also included similar cases among refugees and residents in Yemen.
