Fishermen Community Development Programme (FCDP)

Fishermen Community Development Programme (FCDP) is a voluntary organization founded in the year 1979, under the guidance and leadership of the Salesians of Don Bosco for the integral development of all fisher folk living in the coastal area of Kollam (Quilon). The various programmes of FCDP are geared to benefit all Men, Women, Youth and Children of the fishing community living in the coastal belt by helping them to improve their education, health, culture, economic status, employment opportunities, social awareness and social action. With the cooperation of all its beneficiaries and well-wishers in spite of various challenges thrown on its path, FCDP grew fast in strength and influence. On 14 November 1984 it was registered under the Travancore-Cochin Literary, Scientific, Charitable Societies Registration Act 1955. The various activities of FCDP for the past 30 years have brought about many wholesome changes in this coastal region.
