Who We Are

Last Update: Sep 19, 2023

Our History

The Human Development Foundation was launched by a group of visionary Pakistani Americans in 1997 as a gift to Pakistan on the 50th anniversary of its Independence.

This group of transformational leaders have deep roots in Pakistan and are passionate about human development and poverty eradication. Nearly twenty years later, their quest for positive social change remains at the forefront, and HDF works tirelessly to relieve human suffering.

From this small beginning, HDF has grown to a staff of nearly 700 providing programming in all four provinces of Pakistan. Thanks to you, we reach over 1.5 million with holistic programming that helps create lasting change.
