Community Development Education

Community Development Education (CDE) strives to transform communities into educated, healthy, and socially enriched societies through self-sufficiency, thereby paving the way for a promising future.

Our Philosophy

Community Development Education (CDE) perceives community education as a pivotal initiative in our nation-building efforts, rooted in golden principles derived from religious, cultural, and social values. The organization firmly believes that the concept of nation-building cannot culminate successfully without integrating community education into our developmental ideology. Currently, we have started the community education program in select geographical units, boosting the organization’s confidence to expand community education across Pakistan.


Our Framework

Character Education Foundation (CEF) strongly believes that the impact of Quran Sunnah Education (QSE) and Character Building Education (CBE) can be significantly enhanced by introducing Community Development Education (CDE) as a comprehensive program within the organizational framework. It is a multifaceted initiative with the potential to exert profound and enduring effects on society across eighteen thematic areas. The primary objective of this program is to elevate communities into socially developed entities through proactive initiatives. Community Development Education (CDE) is centered around three core disciplines: formal and non-formal education, health and hygiene, and economic empowerment. To achieve this goal, communities will be mobilized and equipped with the necessary skills for social development on a self-help, self-reliant, and self-sustained basis.

Our outcome

The strategic imperative is to cultivate a prosperous trajectory for Pakistan by striving to elevate communities into well-educated, healthy, and socially enriched entities.
