Introduction to Our Organization

Initiative for Development & Empowerment Axis (IDEA) is a non-profit organization committed to aiding underprivileged communities in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA); which suffered a lot from the War on Terror and flood in 2010 has made the people more vulnerable, hence reduced their strengths to mitigate the risks from different disasters. IDEA is registered under the Voluntary Social Welfare Agencies (Registration & Control) Ordinance 1961; in 2003, having registration # 2172. Apart of this IDEA is also registered with FATA Secretariat Directorate of Social Welfare Registration # 159, and with Ministry of SAFRON for providing assistance to refugees and Internal Displaced Person (IDPs/TDP).

We believe in a change not through a radical dynamics of revolution, but to unfold the social issues with positive solutions of social development mechanisms. We do not offer charity, as we do not believe in it; we offer self-reliance with all the requisite tools of capacity building. The Vision that we have and the Mission that we follow encompasses the Core Value and Strategies that we adopt.
