Community Needs in the Project Area

Between March 2015 and March 2016, some 450,000 dislocated persons returned to Khyber Agency, FATA.

As a result of the crisis, most of infrastructure has been severely damaged due to lack of maintenance. In many cases health, education and WASH facilities in return areas are either non-functional, or inadequately resourced. Meeting the immediate life-saving needs of dislocated people when they return to FATA is one of the key strategic priorities of the humanitarian community in coordination with the Government of Pakistan.

Livelihoods, health and protection situation remained poor in nearly all return areas of Khyber Agency. Protection issues including a lack of psychosocial support were widespread. Access to doctors, especially female doctors, emergency health and maternity services remained a pressing issue in nearly all communities covered.

It was also observed that education, shelter and WASH needs tended to be concentrated in specific communities. In terms of education, girls’ schools were less likely to be functional with significantly lower rates of enrolment than boys’ schools.

JEN addresses humanitarian needs in the recovery phase from self-reliant point of view. That’s why JEN targets the affected populations in terms of livelihood and economic recovery. For this purpose, JEN in collaboration with MOFA-JAPAN is going to start a 3-years livestock development project to support livelihood and economic recovery.

Important aspect of this project is building technical capacity of livestock department staff and livestock farmers on breed improvement through comprehensive training on artificial insemination. Youth in the project area will be trained on entrepreneurship to start their business.




【JEN is now accepting donations. Your help would be very much appreciated.
