About HSF And HSF Fellows
Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF) works in the service of democracy, peace and development in Bavaria, Germany and beyond. Since more than 50 years, HSF has been a respected global partner on good governance, the rule of law, and contacts with Germany.
Being part of the broader German development cooperation, the Munich-based foundation is currently implementing more than 97 projects in about 71 countries worldwide, including Pakistan.

About NDF and YDPC
National Dialogue Forum (NDF) is a non-partisan public policy organization based in Islamabad, Pakistan. NDF adheres to a simple but efficacious idea of ‘unity in diversity’. NDF advocates for a public policy that would foster pluralism and inclusiveness in Pakistan.
Keeping in view the needs of the country, a National Youth Outreach Program by the name of Young Peace and Development Corps (YPDC) was launched by NDF which focuses on engaging youth in the development discourse and conflict resolution processes as a policy tool to guarantee socioeconomic inclusiveness and a youth responsive approach to prevention of conflicts in Pakistan.
