Short Description:

Overall goal

The first phase, a pilot project, was implemented by a new project team of FPHC, the Community Development Project (FPHC/CDP) team. The in-depth, engendered baseline data, collected and analyzed during the pilot project, pointed out some additional areas that are critical for future interventions. At the same time, the initial successful mobilization of women and men in the three camps indicated that the basic direction of the project had been appropriate to the needs of the target groups and should be followed up with a series of concrete actions during the medium-term project.

The overall project purpose is the following:

Improved social, economic, physical and mental well-being of Afghan refugees, especially women and girls, in the three selected camps, Baghicha, Gandaf and Kagan, including those who remain in Pakistan and those who return to Afghanistan.

The project objectives are :

- Sustainable communities and institutions established with broad and equitable participation by the refugees in the three selected camps and good relations established with the local population in the surrounding communities.

- Increased material and non-material human security and improved possibilities for all members of the camp population to exercise their human and civil rights in a healthy environment.

- Substantially raised social, economic, physical and mental status of women and girls in the Afghan refugee population in the three selected camps.

- Increased income on a sustainable and equitable basis for families and groups within the Afghan refugee population in the three selected camps.
