Development Approach and Strategy

Padakhep has set forth and established HDA as a means for achieving its development goals and objectives. Holistic Development Approach (HDA) is the principal strategy of Padakhep which was undertaken for genuine and sustainable development of the community involving and activating both the stakeholders and the beneficiaries as development partners. It is a multi-dimensional and participatory development approach appropriate for sustainable development of the poor beneficiaries. In order to improve the livelihood of people including the poor, Padakhep has been following this approach through implementing a host of interventions centering on community. Unlike many other NGOs in the country which are confined to Minimalist approach (only Microcredit), Padakhep is promoting or pursuing a Maximalist approach (Microcredit plus HDA approach) to break the vicious cycle of poverty. Padakhep’s program interventions are developed in line with poverty reduction strategy of Bangladesh Government and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for addressing the priority issues like education, human resource development, microfinance, agriculture & environment, health & sanitation, child development etc. That is, ‘no one left behind’ is the overall and strategic development approach of the organization. It focuses on the whole society approach for implementation and attainment of the SDGs at organizational and national levels particularly in the areas and intervention levels.
