OUR EXPERTISE

Pakistan has suffered tremendously because of extremism and terrorism. We build social peace and cohesion, and work with the local communities and their leaders. Peace is the only way forward.

Our land has ancient history and diversity. We create safe social spaces, and promote this heritage via literary and cultural expressions with an objective that the people must celebrate their history and diversity.

Pakistan is over 60 percent youth, and there are not enough jobs for them. We support developing the small businesses and microenterprises, particularly for the women and youth in smaller districts.

Pakistan’s future is directly linked with democratic development. Free and responsible media will play an important role in that. We work with media and civil society organizations, and enhance their capacities.

PRIMER ON CSED

Founded in 2015 and based in Islamabad, the Center for Social Education and Development is a sustainable Pakistani nonprofit organization. We are federally registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan, and specialize in building social cohesion, creating public/social spaces for dialogue and cultural expressions, developing microenterprises (particularly for women), and social communication in the local contexts.

We are “positively prejudiced” in favor of the Pakistani women, and they are always at the heart of everything that we do. We reject all forms of discrimination based on race, color, creed, age, national origin, religious or political affiliation, disability, sex and sexual orientation, and gender identity and expression.

DEVELOPMENT IN PAKISTANI CONTEXT

PROJECT PARTNERSHIPS

In addition to implementing our own projects, we provide assistance to principal organizations, local or international, in implementing their project activities.

RESEARCH SERVICES

CSED is a "thinking organization," and we have senior researchers on our panel to carry out qualitative or quantitative researches in the Pakistani perspectives.

ADVOCACY CAMPAIGNS

CSED expertly understands local contexts, and works with partner organizations, and communities and their leaders for effective behavioral change advocacy campaigns.

WHO WE WORK WITH?

Our operations, for most part, depend on the collaborations with the international development partners. With their generous support, we work with truly a wide range of the local partners and communities across Pakistan: political parties, religious organizations and their leaders, media professionals, women and youth groups, universities, business leaders, and public intellectuals et al.

Our partnerships have been immensely fruitful particularly with the USAID, DAI, UN Volunteers, Department of State via the US Embassy, Islamabad, and US Consulates General in Karachi and Peshawar, Norwegian Church Aid, Oxfam, United States Institute of Peace, and Ambassador’s Fund Program. We continue working with our partners for the benefit of local communities in Pakistan.
