Village Development

As part of early recovery plan to help rehabilitate the families whose houses were damaged or destroyed, the IKF embarked on an ambitious Village Development Programme in October 2010. Under this program the IKF aims to repair and reconstruct around 3500 houses in over 70 villages in the flood devastated areas of Sindh, Baluchistan, Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.  VDP is geared to engage communities in an incremental approach for affordable housing. As the activity gains momentum, IKF will mobilize partners support for progressive provision of social and economic amenities. In the long term, village improvement will be pursued with support for basic services of health, education, water and sanitation. To start, the IKF will initiate the following in the villages:

  • The reconstruction of all homes destroyed in the approximately 70 villages.
  • Infrastructure (streets and drains) restoration.
  • Education, health and recreation facilities- restored or created and taken to scale in view of the lessons learned.
  • Microfinance and Livelihood Interventions – skill development, funds for livestock, other income generation schemes. The first practical step has already been taken with the launching of micro finance scheme in Nowshera.
