NIDA-Pakistan Programmatic Approach is bottom-up and holistic, focusing on individual behavior change amongst men and women as well as systematic change in policy and practice towards a more supportive environment for development. We deliver grassroots programs in some of the most hard to reach, social inaccessible, culturally rigid, remote and underserved areas of Pakistan. We are mobilizing, organizing and forming community base structures for self-help based approach and building their capacities through coaching, training and exposure. We also support governments and policymakers to engage marginalized/deprived segment of society in the decisions that affect them. In addition, we build the capacity of other organizations to work more effectively with and for community at large. We also produce research, toolkits, guidance and generate evidence to share our experience with the local, national, regional and global level stakeholders on different areas to ensure we are serving people in the most coordinated and impactful way possible. NIDA-Pakistan started its operations form Besham and thus Head Office is in Besham and areas of operations and filed units/ offices are located in ICT, Punjab, Sindh, Baluchistan, KP, AJK, GB and FATA. The organization directly delivers programs in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, FATA, ICT, Punjab, Sindh, Baluchistan, AJK, and Gilgit Baltistan and we expect to significantly expand our reach over the coming year.
