Investing in People

The People Development Training Center was established in the year 2002 with the sole purpose of Investing in People.

The wealth of knowledge and experience developed over the last 4 decades, implementing innovative, result-driven and highly sustainable development programs, is shared with global development professionals through regular capacity building programs.

The Community Driven Development (CDD) approaches that have contributed to the resounding success of our development programs are introduced to development professionals working in national and international development organizations, university students and government functionaries at these training programs.

From sector specific subject knowledge to emerging trends in development practice, PDTC offers exhaustive trainings and practical exposure to build well-informed, competent and committed development practitioners.

Besides these exclusive training programs, PDTC is also the epicentre of all capacity building activities for the communities involved in various Community Driven Development (CDD) programs being implemented by us.
