Founded in 1987 as a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, IFES has developed and implemented comprehensive, collaborative democracy solutions in more than 120 countries.

Since 2011, IFES has been implementing the General Election Network for Disability Access (AGENDA) project.. AGENDA is a creative partnership among IFES, disabled persons’ organizations (DPOs), and election-focused civil society organizations (CSOs) in Southeast Asia.
