The project, ‘Reintegration and Rehabilitation for Temporarily Displaced Persons (TDP) in FATA’ is funded by the Government of Germany and financed through KfW. It is a five years project that is operational in five newly merged districts of KP. These include Khyber, Kurram, Orakzai, North Waziristan, and South Waziristan districts.
The project package includes interventions around social mobilization, community physical infrastructure, and livelihoods. The returning communities organize their representative bodies, which actively participate in local planning and development. In the previous years, the Project has been able to make the following achievements;
- 199 villages reached in 5 newly merged districts.
- 393 M/W COs organized with 9970 members
- 717 men and 77 women trained in employable skills
- 1,343 men and 30 women trained in NRM based skills
- 274 people trained in O&M training
- 205 CPIs initiated/established benefiting 21,217 households
The European Union has chipped in additional resources through KfW to enhance the benefits of the project to wider community in Newly Merged Districts. This initiative is called the Aid to Uprooted People in Pakistan and has recently become operational.
