About Organization


Laar Humanitarian and Development Programme (LHDP) is a non-governmental, not for profit humanitarian and development organization. It is a legal entity; established on April 2006 and registered under Society Act (1860) on July 1, 2006.

The initial team of LHDP, being the civilian of Pakistan observed the situation of frequent disasters and non-participatory role of civil society and government in local development. They felt an importance of societal role in building a resilient socio-economic environment in disaster prone and marginalized areas of Sindh. This team took initiative from grassroots level with a limited team and self-help approach from the End District of Pakistan, called Badin. Through the continuous efforts and exposure , LHDP became a large scale organization in year 2010 with its geographical coverage in eight districts of Sindh Province.
