Commitment for Native Development Program foundation(CNDP)
Foundation And Background:-
CNDP was founded in 2000.It was the times of Marshal law and the activities of social organizations were prohibited. There was a great need felt to raise voice against the morbid policies to choke development. CNDP with a group of its fundamental organizers took the task to restore he developmental atmosphere. CNDP shared the thought with other organizations working in the area and clustered them to make a chain for action. The voice of poor could not be reached to the ear of policy makers without the co-operation of local organizations. In this pursuit, a “Forum Of Activists” established to activate common people to the development of society.
Formulation of Network:-
Besides local organizations, CNDP has privilege to be supported by regional and international organizations. Networks of social organizations abroad play a part to strengthen CNDP.
Within Pakistan Social Action Forum (SAF) joins the coordination of several organizations under CNDP. A program of native coordination council has been started to bring CSOs and NGOs to a forum to work with CNDP. So that the results shall reach to the grass root level.
Affiliation, Cooperation and Collaboration with international organizations get started. CNDP has found a place in the Integrated Civil Society Database (iCSO) of United Nation’s Division of Economic and Social Affairs.
“Ammado” an Ireland based international forum for civil society organization has selected CNDP for its database in which a number of organizations, companies and volunteers worldwide come on one stage for cooperation among themselves.
Future inspiration of CNDP:-
The problems of Asian countries are identically poor, whether from Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan or any SARC country, deprived of his basic rights for better livelihood. A dream of poverty elimination is seen among all poor persons. Shortfall of basic rights diminishes and fades out these dreams. A abolition of child labor, discrimination in men and women at the point of delivery of the sustainable livelihood is a keynote to take the path to development. In South Asia, there is an exuberance of resources, but the missing of peace process cuts the roots or the tree of development. Children, women, peasants and commoners deprived of the basic needs and rights. Scarcity of opportunity of education tilts the structure of society. Even balanced food and healthcares for every citizen has been banished. CNDP hopes, with the cooperation of national and international organizations, put forth the fruit of development to deliver equally to all the members of society.
