Investing in the human resources is the best investment and capacity building of different segments of the society can give very good results as there is tremendous potential to be exploited. SDS gives due importance to the capacity building of its own staff, community, government departments, local government representative, Community Based Organizations, (CBOs) and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in different sectors of work.


Disaster Management:

After the devastating earthquake of October 2005 DRR and CBDRM is being given the due importance. SDS has been actively involved in relief and response activities and has carried out a number of interventions under DRR and CBDRM.


Education Promotion:

No society can progress unless due importance is given to education, especially female education. There is a need to work collectively to increase enrolment and attendance in the schools and decrease drop out ratio


Advocacy, Lobbying & Campaigning:

Due to low literacy ratio and awareness level it is necessary to play an effective role in opinion building, attitudinal change, awareness raising and policy shift. Having strong roots in the community advocacy and lobbying has been an effective tool of SDS.

Livelihood is an important component of SDS programme areas. While designing the livelihood interventions emphasis is laid on serving the vulnerable segments of the society
