  • Mission:
  • The Center for International Study and Development provides educational and developmental opportunities to the most marginalized and vulnerable populations, empowering them to improve their lives and their communities. Our projects are organized around 12 pillars of development. We believe these are necessary in order to bring lasting positive change. CISD focuses on providing access to education, assisting with tribal health, advocating for the rights of women and girls, preserving the native lands of nomadic people and fostering economic and social development in order to improve the lives of Nomadic people around the world.

  • Overview:
  • About three hundred seventy million tribal nomadic and indigenous people in modern society are marginalized and excluded from the political, social, and economic benefits of the land they have lived on for thousands of years.
    The lack of education, environmental, economic and political factors are threatening their way of life. As a result, there has been a great wave of migration to urban areas. Without any education or skills training, migrants have no ways of finding jobs and supporting their families. CISD seeks to raise global awareness of the struggles faced by these neglected people through study, research, and advocacy. Our programs and projects will build on that knowledge and principle by providing innovative solutions to these communities pressing needs’ such as creating sustainable economic projects that allow them to improve their standards of living, responding to the educational demands facing these people, and preserving their distinctive cultural and linguistic identities.

  • History:
  • In 2005, the organization was opened as Pen Foundation International, a 501c3 nonprofit. In September 2009, it was renamed to the Center for International Study and Development (CISD). CISD is not a political organization. Its programs and project will build on its research to provide innovative solutions to the people with the most pressing need and create sustainable economic projects that allow them to improve their standard of living, respond to the educational demands facing these people while preserving their distinctive cultural, linguistic, and national identity.
