Programme for Family Development (PFD) runs Marriage and Parenting courses for married couples developed by the International Federation for Family Development (IFFD). We look to building and keeping a network of strong and happy families, encouraging them to be united in their approach to parenting.

PFD also offers the Jani Education in Character Formation (ECF) course, a modern approach to teaching character, universal values and authentic comprehensive sexuality to children aged 6 through to 16 years old.

The International Federation for Family Development (IFFD) is a non-governmental, independent, and non-profit federation, whose primary mission is to support families through training.

IFFD programmes are based on a participative methodology, the objective of which is to help parents to improve their relationships with their spouses and develop their child-rearing skills, in order to confront the daily challenges faced by families with confidence, flexibility and good humour.
