Human and Institutional Development Forum (HIDF) works with individuals, groups, organisations, and networks associated with the development sector across India in order to enhance their efficiency and effectiveness.

Some of their 2013 – 14 activities were:

  • Organisational Development and Institution Building: They engaged with a variety of organisations in terms of types, size and sector involvement. The nature of interventions were either long term (6 months to a year or more) or short term (3 to 4 months) ranging from visioning, to streamlining governance to strategic re-orientation to building competencies among staff. While some engagements were continuations from previous years, some others were new, giving fresh insights into aspects of development organisations on how they function as well as the environment or sectors they operate in. Some notable projects were: the strategic orientation of Eklavya in Bhopal; capacity building of field level resource persons of Collectives for Integrated Livelihoods Initiative, Jharkhand; support to Rehnuma Entitlement Centre in Gulbarga, Karnataka; and strengthening the Performance Appraisal System of the Timbaktu Collective
  • Building People’s Competencies: Training and capacity building is about strengthening an individuals’ capacity in their roles as change agents in organisational and institutional settings. While training is a key offering, HIDF also designs, organizes and facilitates open learning events on themes such as: Consultation on development of the Muslim community; the role of Civil Society Organizations; and workshop on ‘Listening to the Unconscious’.
  • Knowledge Building: Notable activities in this area have been a research study on the status of Muslim Families in Gulbarga, Karnataka and on “Successful Leadership Transitions in Civil Society”. Additionally, HIDF plans to work with education institutions, especially regional social work colleges, towards strengthening academics and pedagogy by building capacities of the teaching faculty.
