Poverty Alleviation Network & Self Dependence Initiative (PANSDI) is a not for profit, non-partisan, non-governmental organization working to assist in the improvement of the vulnerable, marginalized and deprived populace who are face with the poverty and deprivation, especially children and women particularly those in the rural areas.

Any small community is very much a part of the modern world. Facing ever-changing economic, social, and environmental pressures, its citizens are challenged to envision, plan for, and create a future that will protect and enhance their quality of life for generations to come. Though the challenges are daunting, both rural and urban communities have found trusted resources in our NGO.

Since 2001, we have been developing projects and planning tools that helped communities define and build healthy, vibrant, and sustainable futures while preserving their heritage.

PANSDI provides innovative tools that facilitate decision making within local communities. The tools include empowerment and employment initiatives, skills acquisition, educational programmes, workshops, publications, presentations, software trainings, and other resources tailored towards poverty alleviation, healthy living, environmental management and the utilization of ICT community development and organizational capacity building.

All our NGO tools are designed to help communities:

  • Build consensus in the community development and economic planning process
  • Enhance the predictability of development planning methods
  • Facilitate timely decision making
  • Benefit from information on the latest proven techniques in community planning
