Mission of the Organization

The Foundation for Innovative and Sustainable Technologies (FIST) was created to support the Centre for Sustainable and Innovative Technologies (CSIT) in some of their activities. The Centre for Sustainable and Innovative Technologies is a social business with the goal of increasing the number of innovative technologies widely used in Tajikistan. The FIST supports this goal by assisting in fundraising and awareness raising activities as well as networking. The primary donors of the two sister organizations to date has been the Mountain Societies Development Support Program (MSDSP) of Tajikistan, the Aga Khan Foundation of Afghanistan, and the Children’s Hope Foundation of Dubai. Small amounts of funding have also been obtained from consulting works and through the sale of literature to the community.
