Centre for Human Development
Centre for Human Development (CHD) is a women-led international non-profit organisation established in 2014 under the leadership of Raheela Narchoor. CHD is the first women-led international organisation working to deliver United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 5 in Kashmir, J&K, India.
Women are under-represented in economic, social, and political decision-making processes. We work in three areas – economic, social, and political empowerment of women. Our working methodology is unique. We use local resources, local practices, and technology to empower women by increasing their participation in the decision-making process.
We also partner locally to create sustainable development solutions in Education, Health, Livelihoods, Technology, Justice and Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH).
