The program domain of Shivi Development Society covers following broad areas:

Women's empowerment: Women's empowerment and gender justice is at the centre of all programmatic interventions as well organisational policies of SDS. It is seen both as a core programme and a cross cutting strategy as well as an organisational value that SDS adheres with. We consider women empowerment vital to sustainable development and the realization of human rights for all.

Child Development: SDS plays a key role in child protection and wellbeing in the framework of rights provided under Child Rights Convention. It responds to child wellbeing and protection concerns through organising children's groups, making delivery of community services more accessible and effective, and reporting on issues of concern.


Youth Empowerment: The third area of programmatic interventions is Youth Empowerment. Under this programme SDS strives to empower young people to avail all possible opportunities for their fullest personality development setting a platform from where they can play a constructive role on a range of social, economic and environmental issues.

Health: Over the past few years, health has become an important programmatic area of intervention. Although, health has been an important activity since the time when SDS was set up, the activities remain limited to organising health camps
