Center of Excellence for Rural Development (CERD) is a non-profit, non governmental organization registered with Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) under section 42 of the companies’ ordinance 1984. CERD is Pakistan Centre of Philanthropy certified (CSO) too. Center of Excellence for Rural Development is envisioned to a future where we achieve excellence in human and institutional development that contributes towards prosperous humanity. CERD responds to emergency and development needs of the affected communities across Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and FATA, helping them bring back to normalcy from unrest due to natural and man-made disasters. In the year 2012, CERD delivered Nutrition services in districts Dir Lower, Swat and Shangla while Community Services in IDP Camps at Togh Sarai, district Hangu and Sadda, Kurram Agency. The year has been important for us in a way that we expanded our two core components Maternal and Child Health and Primary Health Care services to district Hangu and also continued two of flagship projects in MCH and Child Protection services in IDPs Camp Jalozai. Our Community Based Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) components scaled up from single district (Lower Dir) to three districts with addition of district Swat and Shangla. This way we became the major CMAM service provider in KP. It is also commendable to mention that CERD General Food Distribution staff grew from a single food distribution hub to three hubs in district Kohat. We hope to expand General Food Distribution to Hangu in near future. With the financial delivery of US$ 8 million in the last 3 years, CERD is managing more than 850 qualified and experienced managerial and support staff and has a network of its offices across KP and FATA. We enjoy excellent working relationship with the Government of Pakistan at provincial as well as district level.
