Introduction
Welcome to the Pakistan Human Development Fund UK ("PHDF UK") website! PHDF UK is an independent UK registered charity committed to the eradication of poverty and the improvement of health and education in Pakistan. In pursuit of this goal, PHDF UK works not only closely with its partners in Pakistan, but also supports NGOs in the UK in connection with this joint enterprise and also with the United Nation Development Programme ("UNDP").

The Millenium Goals laid down by the UNDP at the international summit in 2000 have been our guide from the start. It was in pursuit of those goals that the Government of Pakistan created the National Commission for Human Development ("NCHD") and commissioned it to identify and set out a road map to achieving these objectives. been our guide from the start. It was in pursuit of those goals that the Government of Pakistan created the National Commission for Human Development ("NCHD") and commissioned it to identify and set out a road map to achieving these objectives. Based upon those fundamental principles, the Pakistan Human Development Fund Pakistan created the National Commission for Human Development ("NCHD") and commissioned it to identify and set out a road map to achieving these objectives. Based upon those fundamental principles, the Pakistan Human Development Fund (the "Fund") was established in Pakistan in 2002 as a tripartite partnership between the civil society, the Government of Pakistan and the UNDP to raise and administer the much needed funds.

The Fund has a unique constitution providing unprecedented levels of transparency and integrity in terms of how charitable donations are collected and thereafter applied. A carefully selected board presides over the fund with representatives from both the private and government sector vetting financial management at a granular level. An independent firm of chartered accountants then audits the financial activities of the Fund and their reports are then posted to the NCHD website.

Earthquake relief has been temporarily added to our objectives, with the emphasis on the urgent needs of the three million homeless and the enormous logistical problems in the remote mountain areas where 400,000 people live at altitudes above 5,000 feet.

Please take the time to browse this website and that of NCHD (by clicking the link) for more information on PHDF and the Fund. I am confident you will find what has been achieved both inspiring and educational.
