The Foundation for Integrated Development Action (now known simply as FIDA) was founded in 2004 by Faiysal AliKhan and his grandfather, the late Brigadier Sadiq Nawaz Khan Awan in response to the years of government neglect and resulting human suffering in Dera Ismail Khan and its surrounding areas in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

The district was chosen as a starting point for the founders to give something back to their ancestral homeland, but also because of its multi-ethnic, multi-linguistic composition and its location as a crossroads neighbored by Punjab, Balochistan and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).

These factors made the area a challenging, yet deserving, place to begin development work.

FIDA has now expanded its work across Khyber Pukhtunkhwa and South Waziristan Agency in FATA and works with a wide variety of donors, partners and communities.


A society built around good governance and democratic ideals, supported by a sound economy and a sustainable use of resources.


To mobilize and build the capacity of existing political and social structures and to act as a link between civil society and marginalized communities, thereby empowering all stakeholders to achieve their identified development goals in a sustainable and replicable manner.
