About FIDA

Working With Communities

FIDA began work over 10 years ago in Dera Ismail Khan and Tank in Khyber Pukhtunkhwa (KP). Since then, FIDA's geographic reach has expanded to South Waziristan in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan and other districts of KP, including Lakki, Bannu, Karak, Kohat and Chitral.

Bridging Modern and Traditional

Taking a long-term approach to development and social change in this region, FIDA aims to act as a bridge between traditional and modern systems of governance and society. While operating conceptually on an 80 to 120 year timeline, FIDA works towards its long-term objectives in measurable 5-year blocks.

To mobilize and build the capacity of existing political and social structures and to act as a link between civil society and marginalized communities, thereby empowering all stakeholders to achieve their identified development goals in a sustainable and replicable manner.
