The SecDev Foundation is a Canadian-based think-do tank that wants better digital futures for all.

We operate globally — with civil society networks, industry and governments — to help communities pursue digital opportunity, safety and citizenship. We work to ensure all of our partners and beneficiaries — especially women and youth — have the skills and knowledge they need to protect themselves from digital harm, and become great digital citizens. We help societies better navigate the emerging opportunities of the global digital economy, which is founded on savvy digital citizens. We help local communities build digital bridges in countries affected by conflict and war.

The SecDev Foundation is a Canadian-based NGO with current operational programming in the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Eurasian region. Our work has been supported by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, The Embassy of the Netherlands, Freedom House, The Open Societies Foundation, the Global Peace and Security Fund (GAC), The Stability Network, Public Safety Canada, Facebook, and Google. Our past and present partnerships and projects are located in Eurasia, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, Western Europe and Canada.
