Kashmir Foundation for Organization Research and Development (KFORD) was founded in the year 2009 with the objective of partnering with government and non-government organisations/institutions to enable inclusive development in Jammu & Kashmir. KFORD is a registered organization having its major thrust on research and development with special focus on child rights and protection issues.

Research forms a core part of our strategy to strengthen and support government and civil society. KFORD undertakes applied research to further our understanding of key issues around the role of civil society within local, national and international development. We conduct research on Socio-Economic, Rights based and Developmental areas that provide civil society, government and academic institutions with new knowledge and insights in order to improve policies and programs. We work closely with our researchers, consultants and program teams to ensure that research findings can be used by both policy makers and practitioners in order to bridge the gap between theory and practice. Another important priority is communicating the findings of our research through publications, our website and through conferences, Stakeholders consultation, meetings and workshops. We have a number of ongoing research programs and regularly start new initiatives. We also offer Consultancy Services in Project Planning, Project Implementation, Monitoring and Evaluation and need based services for Organisations and institutions with developmental objectives. 

KFORD undertakes research, prepare quality documents provide consultation and initiate a vibrant advocacy for Child Rights and Protection issues, women’s rights and rights of indigenous people. Research and consultancy forms a core part of our strategy to strengthen and support civil society. KFORD offers specialist consultancy services for Local, national and international NGOs, NGO support organizations, government and donors involved in international development, rights based & humanitarian aid work, dedicated to strengthening the civil society. 

We seek to influence government, policies and also publish the study reports. Our funding is through grants from governments, independent trusts and foundations.
