Women Development Program (WDP) is a local non government voluntary development organisation which was established in 1987. The goal of WDP is the “Improvement of mother and child health and protection of environmental degradation through different programs and finally access to sustainable socio-
economic development of the disadvantaged and vulnerable people especially women and children through appropriate programs”.
In all its work, WDP, is committed to the principle of “Self actualisation”; a process of lifting peoples consciousness to a level at which they can realise their potential and are motivated to reorder their lives.
WDP works by adopting the target group development approach and most of the groups are associated with women members. It implements all its activities for the purpose of the protection of rights of the target women and children. It continues all its efforts to it’s commitment through mainstreaming gender in a
participatory development process. It collaborates with different local, national and international NGOs and Government departments in realising their common goal through implementing sustainable livelihood restoration of the disadvantaged peoples especially the women.
