The Youth Association for Development (YAD) is a civil society initiative based in Loralai, Baluchistan and whose roots lie with a core of volunteers in different districts of Baluchistan. YAD is a multi sector development organization working on participatory development approach to bring long term change & sustainable development in the society.

The idea of a civil society organization evolved in 2002, when a group of like minded people working in the social, political, human rights and development sector in Baluchistan and having enough international exposure and experience, got together and initiated the dialogue among themselves on issues of peace, democracy, human rights, environment, water, sanitation, hygiene, health, education & other social issues in the province and country.

The group concluded the need for an organization which can address the above mentioned issues through a holistic approach; promote the value of peace and basic human rights; address democratic and governance issues; conduct research and analysis; initiate dialogues among different segments of society; take steps toward a peaceful, tolerant, and democratic society, conservation of environment & natural resources management, sanitation improvement & hygiene education, working for IWRM and provide an enabling environment to civil society of Baluchistan.
