Social development gauges the advancement of a society.  There is no doubt that economical and scientific developments dictate the degree of growth of a society yet social development is the key of the progress of a Society. Health, education, women empowerment, youth development and observation of human rights are aspects of a developed society irrespective of the frames of time and space. But there are ground realities which design the mode of action for the up gradation a society. In our region microfinance and development of agricultural sectors are guarantees of social development. This is the reason SDF has engaged in these areas of social development.
We are well aware of that social development is life long process and there is no other way to tread upon for the progress of our society.

through the inappropriate experience of factory labor.
