The Social Development Program (SDP) strives to empower marginalized communities in order to achieve sustainable development within Pakistan and Afghanistan. Projects actively engage community members to increase access to their basic human rights or facilitate marginalized groups in exercising these rights. Whether working in health, education, livelihoods, or peace and democracy, SDP aims to find long-term solutions to complex issues through a multidimensional and integrated approach to development.
SDP projects are implemented at the community level, keeping community interests at the heart of programming. Community members are engaged throughout each stage of project implementation in order to increase community ownership of the projects and ensure long-term sustainability.
