Empowering people through
village-centric holistic community development

Social Capital Development (SCD) forms the foundation for HDF’s integrated development programs driven by the philosophy of helping people help themselves. SCD teams play a proactive and engaging role in mobilizing communities to identify their needs and find solutions to their problems.

Embracing the rights-based approach, HDF strives to develop self-sustained communities. The process of social mobilization seeks to develop communities through building and strengthening local institutions as well as alliances formed on the basis of shared values, norms, vision and mutual cooperation. We facilitate institution building from the grassroot level. This is done by involving a group of like-minded people with common interests to form a Development Organization (DO). Village Development Organizations (VDOs) are formed at the village level and Local Support Organizations (LSOs) at the Union Council (UC) levels. Sector Committees are formed for education, health, livelihood and physical infrastructure, along with children forums, within each VDO.

Sustainable Development Goal 5

  • Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.

Sustainable Development Goal 16

  • Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.

HDF grooms communities through various levels of the capacity building. This comprises Community Management Skills training (CMSTs), Business Management Skills Trainings (BMSTs), conferences and seminars among others. Gender is a cross cutting priority. Gender mainstreaming and women’s participation in all aspects of community development is ensured.
