Human Development Foundation
Who We Are
Twenty years ago, a group of Pakistani Americans embarked on a journey to fulfill their vision by gifting a nonprofit organization to Pakistan on its 50th Independence anniversary. Through this nonprofit, known today as the Human Development Foundation (HDF), these leaders brought to the frontline a deep passion for sustainable human development in all its forms. Committed to their mission of bringing positive social change and community empowerment free of any political interference, the staff of over 600 strives to develop an organization dedicated to excellence and recognized for innovative and impactful human development programs.
Human Development Foundation (HDF) Pakistan is one of the leading nonprofit development organizations registered under section 42 of the Companies Ordinance, 1984 of the Government of Pakistan and also is tax-exempt under section 2(36) of Income Tax Ordinance, 2001. HDF Pakistan was created to extend the movement to Pakistan and implement a holistic model of development which delivers diverse and sustainable solutions to five key areas; Social Capital Development, Education & Literacy, Primary Healthcare, Economic Development and Sustainable Environment.
