Community Institution Building and Youth Development



SRSP through the Process of Social Mobilization builds the capacity of Community based organizations through community activist and leadership training. Under Programme for Economic Advancement and Community Empowerment (PEACE) communities in Malakand are being strengthened.

Under PEACE SRSP has formed 6,561 community based organizations with a membership of over 136,500 men and women.

Community Institutions are inclusive institutions that bring together all members of the community. SRSP builds the capacity of these organizations through community activist and leadership training. The project has formed over 8,400 Community Institutions, with women community institutions amounting to over 27 percent. These institutions have a collective membership of over 175,200 people. Over 33,000 members trained in community and leadership management skills. 254 Events held for Cognitive, personal and social development benefiting over 28,600 Youth.

Formation of over 27 percent of women community based organizations with over 44,000 members is a major achievement. These women have federated over 675 community based organizations into 175 village based organizations. It is a definitive indicator of women’s enthusiasm and zeal to take part in local development. These organizations will ensure development at households and villages level.

Over 33,000 men and women activists have trained in technical and managerial skills. Activities for improving cognitive, personal and social development are undertaken benefiting 28,600 Youth members. Their engagement is likely to continue throughout programme period as ROI at this young age is very high besides being a major contributor in developing this youth as responsible citizens.
