People Demand Change Inc. (or PDC), was established in early 2013 in response to the seismic changes taking place in the Middle East, and the need for the implementation of a new relationship between aid providers and the communities on the ground being served. PDC currently is working to expand its services to support local communities globally in their quest for resilience and sustainability in the face of long-term social, political, and security challenges. PDC helps in aiding this transformation by developing long-term relationships with key communities and populations, working with them in a collaborative and culturally competent fashion that takes into account the changing dynamics over the course of time. PDC works to support civil society organizations through programming and training, while also working to create accountability and transparency for development work through its monitoring and evaluation and third-party monitoring work with humanitarian aid and development programs alike. People Demand Change (PDC) is a small aid and development firm with extensive experience operating and implementing programming in the MENA region for eight years and is currently expanding into central Asia. PDC’s main satellite office is out of Turkey for the past seven years and operates as an effective regional hub for PDC’s operations in the Middle East and Central Asia. PDC’s second satellite office is in Erbil, Iraq, which handles all work in the Levant region itself. PDC’s third satellite office is in Tunisia, which supports all programming in North Africa. PDC has worked in other conflict zones and non-permissive environments across the MENA region, including Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Syria, Turkey, Tunisia, and Yemen.
