Creative Development Society-Nepal(CDS) was established in 2050 B. S. (1993) in order to help improve the socio-economic and cultural situation of backward and poor people. This is a non-partisan, non-discriminatory and non-religious organization serving the marginalized, disadvantaged and resource poor community.
Since efficient and optimum resource mobilisation is not possible only by the government sector, role of non-government organizations has been witnessed to be pivotal in sensitizing and creating awareness among all sections of the society. Guided and motivated by this very phenomenon, a pragmatic team of social workers, activists, researchers, and professionals initiated the creation of this organization in order to complement and supplement the national plans, policies and priorities of His majesty’s Government of Nepal. The activists, who are well acquainted and familiar with the life and blood of the society, have been instrumental in transforming the attitudes and understanding within the society since the establishment of this organisation.
CDS-Nepal has been serving the community by mobilising the unused and underutilized resources available within the society. It has also undertaken significant activities that have enhanced the production and productivity of the economy as a whole. In the mean time, it has helped the society in creating awareness through advocacy, and strengthening the leadership capability of the hitherto excluded and disadvantaged groups. Empowerment through peoples’ participation has been the significant achievement of CDS- Nepal, so far.
