Founded in 1976, De Laas Gul (DLG) is one of the leading Non-Profit Development Organizations of Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa (NWFP), with deep trenched and far reaching social interventions in the region. Head quartered in Peshawar, DLG is implementing a human resource development program at the grass roots level that is based on three essential requisites of social advancement and poverty alleviation i.e. education, skills enhancement and social awareness.

Through its program, DLG is reaching out to thousands of beneficiaries in the region, especially under privileged women and children who constitute our essential target group.Taking a holistic approach towards social development, the broader goal of the DLG program is to promote whole communities while extending support to selected target groups.

In the current unpredictable scenario in Pakistan, especially in KP province and FATA, where the communities are faced with multifaceted problems and are affected in almost all walks of day to day life and need immediate attention. These communities, beside continuous security threats, due to conflicts and natural disasters are suffering from lack of Health, Hygiene, Education, Infrastructure, Agriculture, WASH and livelihood opportunities thus making community restoration, a key activity by all the development partners for solving these issues. DLG has devoted much of its time and resources for relief and rehabilitation activities for the affected communities.

The overall Objective of DLGs interventions and scope of work is to establish a peaceful and harmonized society where the communities have all kind of liberties to exercise their basic rights and lead a secure, peaceful and healthy life. Whereas, the specific focus of DLG remains on the marginalized, helpless and poverty ridden communities.
