UNHC-RAHA partnered with SRSP for ‘collective action, restoration of social services, livelihoods and Infrastructure Development’ in refugee affected areas. The areas targeted were Buner, Haripur and Mansehra. The overarching objective was to ease the impact on the host communities through building the resilience of the people and providing access to basic infrastructure needs. Under the project 8 schools, 7 Basic Health Units and 4 Technical Vocational Centers were rehabilitated in the three districts. Livelihood trainings and tool kits were also provided to 50 community members. There were approximately 35,000 beneficiaries, and follow up studies found improvements in student enrollments and school environment, health conditions in the area, morbidity and mortality rates for mother and child decreased, and the relationship between the host and refugee communities was developed and strengthened. Public services were improved and livelihood conditions were enhanced by strengthening the capacities (and developing linkages) of the government, community institutions and vulnerable groups.
