Agriculture Support To Returnees In Khyber Agency, FATA

JEN has been working with affected people of complex emergency in KP/FATA since 2011. JEN has assisted more than 10,000 families in different sectors including Shelter/Non-Food Items, WASH and Food Security.

Recently JEN has started an agriculture support project for returnees of Khyber Agency in FATA. The people of Khyber Agency were temporarily displaced from their homes due to military operations against armed militants. As 6 years have passed and the situation started to settle, people started returning. (So far 54,599 families have returned to Khyber Agency and 32,217 families are still temporarily displaced from their homes. Source:UNOCHA)

JEN will target 1,150 returnee families in the agriculture support project. JEN will provide these returnee families with agriculture tool kits and seeds for farming and kitchen gardening. Purpose of the project is to help recover the livelihood and improve food security at household level.

Women are equal beneficiaries of JEN in this project where JEN will provide them with seeds of vegetables, tools and training to start production at their homes. It would help them to get nutritious food and become healthy.

Men who are the bread winners for their families will be given 50 kg of seeds, farming tools and training by the agriculture expert and government agriculture department. It would help them in their livelihood recovery efforts.

At the end of the project, JEN is expecting to improve food security status of the affected families and enable them to sustainably stay at their homes.
