Frontier Development and Support (FDS) is an incorporated non-profit organisation based in Australia, with unique access to restricted areas, strong local relationships and an in-depth understanding of the cultures we work in. FDS can offer practical help in challenging locations.

FDS is currently planning to implement new social welfare initiatives throughout the remote Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) of Pakistan where few NGOs are able to operate effectively.

Our primary objectives are small scale, rapidly achievable capacity-building projects in villages of the Khyber and Orakzai agencies, followed by larger strategies to improve health and education.

FDS will maintain accountability and implement systems to monitor and evaluate projects effectively. By using unique local relationships to deliver projects we aim to avoid the many barriers commonly inhibiting aid from reaching intended recipients.
