Society Development Committee (SDC)

About Us

Society Development Committee (SDC) emerged as a local non-governmental voluntary organization since1988. From the very beginning, SDC has been continuing its activities for overall economic and social development for the poverty-stricken disadvantaged section of society- especially for women, children, and the disabled. Recently SDC has attained the age of 34 years. Over the period it has gradually expanded its agenda of activities and operated accordingly through 92 branches in 2884 villages, 415 unions, and 52 Upazilas of 17 districts. SDC has established a strong network, linkage, collaboration, and partnership with different local, national, and international NGOs/donor agencies, different government institutions as well as other people’s organizations and professional groups. SDC has accomplished a good number of non-financial programs besides microfinance as it is the organizational core program and these have been providing essential services including education for the children of poor households; primary health service for the grassroots people; health awareness for illiterate segments; sanitation & hygiene for the downtrodden; Agri-machineries, vermin-compost, extension, training and market linkage services for the start-up, marginal, small-holder farmers and entrepreneurs. Target populations living at the bottom of the socio-economic pyramid have benefited from these non-financial services of SDC.
