Who We Work With?

In addition to working with the local and international development partners, we consistently engage with professional and community organizations and their leaders on the four thematic areas mentioned above.

CSED's Board Members and the core Management Team include accomplished and experienced professionals. They carry solid international and regional social and development perspectives, which enables the organization to work with global and local stakeholders with ease and expertise. Although we have primarily worked with US and EU-based donors, we continue exploring opportunities to connect with corporate, public, and community-based organizations to benefit local communities.


Our Impact

In collaboration with our partners, we have worked with communities, civil society organizations, and local leaders across Pakistan.
