A new project launches on August 20th to support the improvement of infrastructure, specifically the restoration of water sanitation facilities

As the anti-government forces began to mop up regions of Pakistan, many families were forced to flee their homes. However, following the completion of the operation in December of 2014, many families began to return home. 40,000 families have already returned to Central Kurram district, with approximately just 5,000 families remaining under displacement (Source: UNCHA Humanitarian Snap Shot, as of July in 2018, ). JEN has launched a new project to support the improvement of infrastructure, specifically focusing on the restoration of water sanitation facilities for those who have repatriated in the Central Kurram District, located in the Federally Administered Tribal Area on the boarder of Afghanistan and Pakistan.


  1. To repair 7 water supply facilities for 2300 returned families in 35 villages in FATA Central Kurram district in Pakistan, including water storages and water supply tanks, as well as the installment of new 19 manual water pumps to ensure access to clean water for drinking and irrigation.


  1. To aid in the foundation of 10 water management committees, and provide training on maintaining the facilities to ensure that the repatriated individuals themselves can be responsible for the maintenance and management. Additionally, to distribute basic sanitation kits to the repatriated families to maintain and improve the quality of sanitation via sanitation and hygiene awareness.


  1. To restore sanitary facilities at 4 schools and 4 clinics in the district, with 16 and 8 toilets installed at the respective facilities; to provide hygiene education to 520 students at the 4 schools, 130 students from each school, with the aim to maintain and improve the quality of sanitation.


Prior to starting this new project in Pakistan, the JEN staff members have relearned the CHS, or Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability. As a responsible trustee of subsidies and donations, we will keep striving to improve the quality of our aid activities through the evaluation and review of each achievement while continuing our studies, so that we can carry out our mission in a way that allows for our practice and aid activities to accurately reflect what we have learned.
