Peshawar: The Sarhad Rural Support Programme (SRSP) has launched as many as 17 community infrastructure schemes in the districts of North and South Waziristan – under the European Union (EU) funded “Aid to uprooted people in Pakistan” project, according to a news source published on October 06.
The project is being jointly funded by EU and Germany’s KfW Development Bank. The initiative aims to implement/establish six potable water supply schemes, five sanitisation, and four irrigation schemes – at a total cost of PKR 66.5 million.
Reportedly, these schemes would benefit a total of 1,800 households in selected villages. As the name of the initiative implies, all these community infrastructure schemes have been developed in areas where displaced families have recently returned.
Under this programme, organised by the SRSP, the selected communities would be able to identify their infrastructural needs and implement them systematically – in the villages located in the districts of North and South Waziristan – with the technical assistance of the project team.
