Society For Development Initiatives

SDI is a platform which has drawn NGO professionals who have adopted social
development as a life time mission. The rich and diverse experience of the initiators is
its unique asset.SDI envisions a society where all the people will have equal opportunity and access to  resources to realize their human potentials and quality of life aspirations.The initiative or the agenda was to trigger a self-empowerment process whereby the
poor and powerless can take charge of their own self actualization agenda and
empowering people for their participation in the decision making process effecting
their lives.

SDI was established in 1993 by a group of like minded self motivated development workers
who were imbibed with the zeal to address the social maladies with a vision of realizing the
human potential of the disadvantaged and powerless, alienated from the social, economic
and institutional resources.
Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of
future generations to meet their own needs.SDIs focuses on the issues of alleviation of the quality of life of the people at the bottom of
the scale of human development index. SDI’ intervention were mostly focused on women.
Our women partners have been able significantly improve the quality of life of families.
Women’s status has enhanced and many social injustices against women are being reduced.
Women are having their effective representatives in the local elected bodies.SDI has developed partnership with several mainstream banks to provide credit to its
grassroots partners. SDI used the credit line received from banks mainly in agricultural
sector. Presently SDI is promoting Credit + activities in agricultural sector in its programme
footprint areas.We express our gratitude and admiration for our patrons and partners at grassroots and
staff members for their continued trust and support, contribution and participation,
dedication and commitment without which SDI could not have achieved what has been
stated above.
SDI welcome and will gratefully acknowledge readers feedback to enrich our future report.
