The three entities of the FSD group
Fondation suisse de déminage
FSD is a humanitarian non-governmental organisation (NGO) based in Geneva, Switzerland. Founded in 1997 under the name, “Fédération suisse de déminage” (Swiss federation for mine action), the organisation was renamed Fondation suisse de déminage (Swiss foundation for mine action) in 2003. FSD provides consolidated accounts for the three entities of the FSD group.
Crosstech S.A. is a commercial company registered in Geneva. FSD created Crosstech in 2007 to intervene in projects which humanitarian NGOs cannot implement. FSD fully owns the commercial company.

In 2005, FSD created a sister organisation in Archamps, in neighbouring France. Registered under French law, FSD France is an association with around 60 members. The association mainly implements its projects with financial support from the European Union.
