The historical roots of Sohni Dharti Development Foundation (SDDF) are associated with Community Social Welfare Council (CSWC) i.e. a model NGO which was registered with Social Welfare Department NWFP in 1961. CSWC is the most experienced and the oldest NGO of NWFP Pakistan and has got a large number of development projects on its credit.
