Thank you very much for all your donations and support. AWARD Pakistan has taken an initiative to raise funds for the installation of hand pumps and water wells. In its first phase, So far 3 water wells and 1 water hand-pump has been successfully installed and rest are under development in the rural areas of Balakot, District Mansehra, Khyber Pakhtunkhaw with the support of the local community.
The donations to this project in the recent project has declined due to some reason. We are trying to engage our supporters so that we can start installing a water well in other areas too.
AWARD Pakistan’s Regional Coordinator Mr. Mustafa is regularly visiting the 4 areas (Jageer and Grang Maidaan, Shawaal Maidaan and Baisiyaan).During his recent visit he found the communities happy and they using this facility responsibly. The local committees are putting their efforts to engage the communities and have promised to protect the facility at any cost. The community has also collected a certain amount on self-help basis as the maintenance fund the communities and committees to deal with the issue collectively (if happens)
A decline in the mentioned diseases has been noticed by the coordinator as well as by the community. We hope that we will raise enough funds to start installing the water wells again in the next quarter in the next areas.
In order to increase the number of areas, We request all our donors and supporters to donate us for this cause to provide children and women (living on the mountains), an access to the carbon-free and safe drinking water.

3rd Report for the Construction of Training Center
By Azeem Christopher - Program Coordinator
Thank you for all your support and donations. Our project "A Training Center to Support 400 Women Every Year" has managed to raise an amount of $1,595 since it has been uploaded. We would also like to thank the donors who have supported us during the 2 matching campaigns in the month of march. But there has been a decline in raising funds especially for this project during the last quarter.
We also want to bring this into our donors notice that there was a technical issues with the disbursement through Fxecute transfers, which has been resolved now. We have received the amount raised for the project. Usually the disbursement process takes about 4-8 weeks for the donations to reach our local banks.
Currently, after receiveing the amount, we are in a process to get the estimation of the construction from different construction companies and contractors. We will start working out on the initial foundation of the building once we get the best quotation. The donation process for this project is relatively slow as compared to our other initiatives, therefore we request all our supporters to please help us to achive our target to support poor women
It is worth mentioning that the approved map for the project has been updated and it has been uploaded in the previous report a. Once again we thank you for all your support and donations and request you to please help us to achieve our target.
Please do not hesitate if you have any questions or queries.
