Human Development and Community Services (HDCS) is a Nepali National, non-profit, non-governmental organisation founded on biblical principles and values. It is registered with the Government of Nepal. HDCS was founded by the National Churches Fellowship (NCF) Nepal, as they felt led by the Holy Spirit to reach out in social ministry, in addition to direct evangelism, to the people of Nepal. As this ministry, which included non-formal education programmes and education and development initiatives, grew and developed from 1990, a decision was made to create an autonomous organisation to continue this ministry in 1998. Thus Human Development and Community Services was created, and was registered with the Government of Nepal in 2000.
