In 2018, FST successfully completes a decade of being a registered organisation. In this period, FST has been able to connect to a network of smaller, community based organisations and individuals from various parts of the Northeast. Our partner organisations and individuals have worked on a wide range of social issues pertinent to the region and in line with FST’s vision and mission. Through its work, FST has been able to reach out to some of the most remote disadvantages and vulnerable communities. Organizationally, FST has seen a steady growth along with a natural course of up and downs in an organisation life circle and has managed to survive through some critical resources and management crunches. Over these years FST has been working actively across the states of northeast reflecting an effective and true transformation. We have successfully completed a series of projects and related activities to build in our resources and capabilities in the long run.Here are some of our latest activities:
