Oasis Development Foundation Balochistan ODFB is a group of motivated individuals belong to different sphere of life who is striving to contribute in the development and enhancement of qualitative education in the Balochistan particularly in the rural areas of Province.
ODFB is a provincial based Non-Government and non-Profitable Development Organization working in social development sectors of Balochistan province since 2004.
Initially ODFB activities were revolved around creating public awareness through campaigns of different levels and strengths on self help bases aiming to create awareness among the people on basic issues like promotion of qualitative education and health related issues. These accomplishments bring in response from the community and this encouraging stance helped to expand ODFB activities.
ODFB is registered under the Societies Registration Act 1861 in 2005, as an indigenous Development Organization. It is governed by a volunteer general body through a Board of Directors, and operates from three offices in the province, including a main office Sibi, and District Offices in Kachhi (Bolan) and Jaffarabad.
The genesis of ODFB goes back to 2002 when a group of likeminded young men and women working in the development sector in province got together to form an organization that addressed the most urgent and pressing needs of the people of Balochistan. This group of people had a long experience of working in development related activities and was either directly or indirectly associated with local and national level organizations. The need for creating an organization came from the very black picture Balochistan presents in terms of basic development indicators such as education, health, and Gender discrimination in the society.
The founding members of ODFB had a long-term commitment and a vision for the province. They wanted to address the problems faced by the poor communities of Balochistan and with this in mind they founded the organization that they called Oasis Development Foundation Balochistan more popularly known as ODFB.
