Alfalah Development Foundation (ADF) is a non-profit non-governmental organization (NGO) registered with Social Welfare Department Peshawar, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in July 2008.
The name “Alfalah” is an Arabic word meaning ‘’welfare’’ and is the prime objective for the establishment of ADF. After getting a warm response for our services in local communities, we extended our canvas to different sectors and geographical areas. Today we are serving poor communities in the sector of Education, Livelihood, Small Infrastructure, Water Supply, Health and Protection and evidence based advocacy. ADF, respecting the local values, forms an organization sensitive to the local welfare needs, aspirations, capabilities and potentials of the poor of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and other areas of the country. ADF played and is playing a distinct role in supporting developmental interventions that stimulates the socio-economic indicators of dwellers across Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in specific and Pakistan in general. This belief is harmonized by its local community acceptance and spread penetration.
Due to the trust of our funding partners, beneficiaries, members and our projects being augmenting the government efforts, we are have so far completed more than a dozen projects worth PKR100millions with organizations and donors including UNHCR/RAHA, CERD, UNDP, USAID/IRD, TVO, Talat Hussain & Kashif Abbasi Flood Relief Fund, British Council Pakistan, HOPE’87, SPO, CRS Pakistan, Rapid Fund/Concern Worldwide and ACTED.
