Development & Empowerment Society (DES) is an independent registered non-government and nonprofit civil society organization. Prime motto of DES is capacity building and services delivery to the deprived and marginalized people of the society.
In 2015 a group of educated, dynamic and like-minded youth working in the development sector, got together to establish an organization, for addressing the most urgent and pressing needs of the peoples. True to this spirit the organization was named Development & Empowerment Society.
Considering their association with the development sector the group was conscious of the overabundance of problems troubling the development. Consequently, the organization’s focus was not kept limited either in terms of geography or sector. DES has been carrying a range of interventions in the areas of education, health & hygiene, youth & women empowerment, emergency response & preparedness, governance, free legal aid, human rights, etc.
The type of activities undertaken by the organization range from capacity building to service delivery, with focus remaining on the deprived and marginalized segments of the society. Whereas in terms of operations what characterizes DES’s functioning are its efforts to (a) enlist involvement of the locals when initiating activities at the grass root level; and (b) mobilize women for bringing peace, tolerance, and development in society.
