Concerned with the dismal state of MDGs and Pakistan’s ranking on Human Development Index, SPO led the process of developing research based District Human Development Reports of four districts (SWABI, D I Khan, Pakpattan and DG Khan) under AAWAZ program. The initiative is first of its kind in Pakistan whereas national level Human Development Reports are routinely published by UNDP which provide ranking of various districts but no reports at district level are available.
The SPO conducted eight Health and Hygiene training sessions in the month of September 2015;two sessions for male TDPs, twosessions for female TDPs, twosessions for local male community members and two sessions for local female community members were organised. In each session 20 participants attended the training. The female sessions were conducted in their respective areas and the male sessions were conducted in SPO-Office. One male TDPs session and one female TDPs session were conducted in the month of August. Hence, total 10 health and hygiene sessions were conducted in which 120 TDPs households (60 male and 60 female) and 80 local community households (40 male and 40 female) were provided the training. The training to TDPs participants were delivered in their native Pashto language and for this purpose male trainers were selected while for the local communities Saraki language was used as a mean of communication.
