Mission: National Commission for Human Development is a not for profit organization with the mission to transform lives by improving access to basic education and healthcare in the country’s poorest communities. NCHD is the leading agency fighting illiteracy in 134 districts of Pakistan and helping people to find routes out of ignorance.
With nationwide network of 101 Human Development Support Units situated all over Pakistan and hands-on-experience, NCHD aims at enlarging the scale and scope of the efforts made by the government in ensuring the effective provision of social services. It perceives human development as a process of enlarging choices, building capacities and encouraging participation of communities at the grass roots. To ensure this, NCHD is directed towards supporting government line departments, civil society organizations and the local communities in the sectors of education, basic health care and income generating activities at the grassroots.

NCHD identifies, and consequently presents innovative and cost effective solutions to fill implementation gaps, building the capacities of the involved agencies and stakeholders to effectively address the issues hampering the process. Through extensive training programs and capacity building workshops which cater to all the stakeholders involved in the process, NCHD helps ensure a lasting impact. These capacity building exercises are targeted towards Government Line departments, community based organizations and the community.

We are functioning as the support agency providing both the provincial and federal governments with the technical and hands-on experience to achieve both Education for All and Millennium Development Goals in Pakistan.

We seek a literate and healthy nation, where government is empowered to provide basic education and health facilities to all. Our vision is to learn from the experiences of both public and private sectors at national and international level, identify best practices and use them for effecting improvements in the social sectors in Pakistan.

As the leading organization for Literacy in Pakistan, National Commission for Human Development is striving to empower the people at the grassroots to become the agents of social change.

“Our mission is to support the government by filling the implementation gaps and improve public sector delivery mechanisms to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and “Education For All” with focus on:

Goal 2: Achieve Universal Primary Education

Goal 3: Promote Gender Equality and empower women

Goal 4: Reduce Child Mortality

Goal 5: Improve Maternal Health”

We are deeply committed to promoting learning for all people-especially for the most vulnerable adults and children who are most difficult to reach. The basic NCHD strategy is to introduce a process complimenting the ongoing efforts to achieve MDGs in Pakistan.

Developing an operational framework to introduce processes that remain consistent with the objective of achieving the MDGs has been one of the cornerstones of NCHD’s strategy. NCHD has adopted an innovative strategy for improving the state of human development, directly focused on people’s needs by acting as a support organization at the grassroots to fill the implementation gaps through community participation.



The core of NCHD strategy lies with:

1. Public Private Partnership
2. Capacity Building of Government Line Departments, Community Organizations and Elected Officials
3. Community partnership and Ownership

----------------------------------

FROM THE SITE:

National Commission for Human Development (NCHD) is present in all the 144 districts of Pakistan. Through its network it acts in close coordination with the district administration and other stake holders, and is playing a lead role in organizing evacuation and relief operations in all the affected districts of Pakistan. NCHD has provided worthwhile support in the past during the devastating earth quake of October, 2005, in Mansehra, Balakot and Muzzaffarabad. Subsequently, we had been keen upon helping IDPs during the catastrophe in Swat in the areas of Mardan, Charsadda and Swabi, and then more recently supported the relief operations in Atta Abad and Hunza lake disaster in Gilgit-Baltistan.

NCHD once again is ready and alert to deliver to the nation in order to support our government in the efforts to provide relief to the people of flood affected areas of Pakistan. NCHD without delay activated its Rescue and Relief Operations from 30th July, 2010 onwards, and also sent out an immediate appeal to all donor agencies and philanthropists to step forward and assist us in our efforts.

NCHD has ever since made available rescue teams, mobile and static emergency health camps, essential medicines and food items, clean drinking water and tents for shelter.

NCHD is carrying out relief operations from donations alone, and no government funds are being used for this purpose.

FROM THE SITE:

APPEAL FOR DONATIONS

NCHD appeals for your help to assist us in our rescue and relief efforts initiated in close collaboration with the Provincial and District Government and the Pak Army and Navy.

More than 20 million people have been affected by these floods in Pakistan, a loss greater than the Tsunami. 90% water schemes have been damaged in flood hit areas, while sanitation and sewerage facilities lie hopelessly out of order, leaving the regions vulnerable to scrounging epidemics.

NCHD is carrying out relief operations from donations alone, and no government funds are being used for this purpose. All the staff of NCHD has contributed one-day salary to address the needs of their brethren in these times of great distress, while the Chairperson herself has contributed her entire month’s salary in lieu of these donations, and ensuring further medical aid. Pakistan Human Development Fund Board Members are donating generously in addition.

We appeal once again to our kind donors and philanthropists within Pakistan and abroad to step forward and stand by us to help our fellow people in their hour of want.
