In 1997, on the occasion of Pakistan’s 50th anniversary of independence, a group of Pakistani American visionaries came together to work for human development in Pakistan and launched The Human Development Foundation. As transformational leaders with deep roots in Pakistan, we are passionate about human development and poverty eradication.
Nearly twenty years later, our quest for positive social change remains at the forefront, and we, at the foundation, work tirelessly to help people have prosperous lives. Over the last 2 decades, HDF has grown to a staff of over 600, working across 4 provinces of Pakistan. Thanks to our donors and supporters, today the foundation reaches over 2 million people through its holistic programming that inspires deep and lasting change.
