5th Report on Women Vegetable Club

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your worthy donations and support. Through your support we have been able to implement a project which has started bringing the change in the lives of the rural. The vegetables grown during the month of August has started giving the yield to the beneficiaries. Three Beneficiaries Rashida, Khadija and Shamim made it possible through their hard work. They grew Radish , Potatoes, Corriander and Turnips. The Radish is ready and is ready to be sold. Potatoes would be the next one to be sold in the market. The Selling of Radish has given the beneficiries a good profit. They are very happy and satisfied and want to continue it. Their husbands are also involved in this and are helping them to sell the vegetables in the market.

One of the beneficiaries Khadija Bibi expressed her feelings " I am very grateful to the people who have helped me in achieving this and also AWARD Pakistan who have helped me so that I could support myself and my family. I would love to continue this thing and increase my land and the yield in the comingyears"

3rd report for Carbon Free Water

Digging the Well
Digging the Well

THE NEED: 
Safe Drinking Water is the most important resource for Balakot,KP,Pakistan.The area is losing its major resource which is essential for survival. Before the deadliest earthquake of October, 2005 (100,000 people died),  the residents of the nearest populations used to rely on water falls and  the river water flowing down from the mountains.

Due to heavy deforestation and the post affects of the earthquake, the water now has been diluted with carbon, graphite, dirt and waste. Unfortunately, nearby residents especially children and women have to rely on it which has increased the death toll in the rural areas up to 30%.The most common diseases are diarrhea,allergy,hepatitis and typhoid.


OUR EFFORTS: 
AWARD Pakistan has taken an initiative to start raising funds for the installation of hand pumps and water wells. In its first phase 5 hand pumps and 1 water well will be installed in the 6 rural areas of Balakot, District Mansehra, Khyber Pakhtunkhaw with the support of the local community. So far 1 water well and 1 water hand-pump has been successfully installed and rest are under development. Altogether, AWARD Pakistan intends to install 32 hand pumps in 16 rural areas of Balakot.
It is also to be mentioned that an average cost of digging a water well and installing a hand pump on mountainous area is 5 to 6 times higher than an average installation in Punjab and other plain areas of Pakistan.

APPEAL: 
We request all our donors and supporters to support us in the cause to provide children and women (living on the mountains), an access to the carbon-free water .

Flood Emergency Report 1

Team reaching the communities
Team reaching the communities

Dear friends

 

Greetings from AWARD Pakistan,

 

Every year July and August are months of heavy rains in Pakistan.In 2015,the heavy rains have caused severe flood situation all over Pakistan especially in the provinces (Punjab and KPK).Last year,the floods have affected 817,713 people and 2275 villages of Pakistan.The Project focuses on the prior preparation of the communities of the 15 villages of Southern Punjab to save themselves from the floods through the Disaster Risk Reduction trainings.

AWARD Pakistan wishes to prepare the communities(at higher risk) so that they should be able to save their familes, livestock, belongings and valueables from the flood which could hit anytime after the severe rain. The project aims to formate 15 volunteer groups in 15 most vulnerable areas where they would be trained about generating the early warning systems and to take precise measures to reduce the amount of losses they face bearly every year.

So far AWARD Pakistan team has been conducting surverys in several rural areas of Muzaffargarh which lies next to the river. These areas lies on a 1 and half hours distance from AWARD Pakistan regional office. The Journey also includes the half an hour travel on the boats though the river which is essential to reach the target communities. As the project has not been able to collect any donations so far therefore the survey process is a bit slow and will be ended by the end of november.  

We would like all our readers to help us reach the vulnerbale communities and to support us in our cause.
