The historical roots of Sohni Dharti Development Foundation (SDDF) are associated with Community Social Welfare Council (CSWC) i.e. a model NGO which was registered with Social Welfare Department NWFP in 1961. CSWC is the most experienced and the oldest NGO of NWFP Pakistan and has got a large number of development projects on its credit. In 1990, CSWC was divided into two wings namely Executive Wing and SDDF wing. The Executive Wing, since then, is responsible for policy making issues and the SDDF wing is responsible for the implementation of humanitarian projects. SDDF was also registered as a separate NGO in 1997. Currently, SDDF is involved in several humanitarian programs in different sectors e.g. Education, Health & Hygiene, Access to Justice, Environment, Water & Sanitation, Poverty Alleviation, Women Rights, Child Protection, Psychosocial Support, etc. SDDF believes in the development of communities through a participatory approach to ensure sustainable development at grass root level.
