The emblem denotes three words: Ishq, Ilm, Aml meaning passion, knowledge and action the core
values driving the institution.
Pakistans districts bordering Iran and Afghanistan are suering from both poverty and severe on-going conicts, and are some of the most vulnerable areas of the country. In line with its Poverty Reduction Strategy, the Government has approved an integrated and holistic programme aimed at empowering the local communities in these areas, so that they can create social safety nets for the vulnerable and invest in small scale productive infrastructure, education, health, skill training, access to micronance, and setting up micro enterprises, thus enhancing their quality of life.
Financed by the Government of Italy through the Directorate General for Development Cooperation, and supervised by the World Bank (as per PPAF-III guidelines), the 40 million Euro Programme for Poverty Reduction is implemented in 14 Districts and 38 Union Councils through organizations partnered by the Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund (PPAF). Mobilized in 2013, this is a 3- year Programme.
About PPAFPPAF is an apex institution for community-driven development in the country. Set up as an autonomous and not-for-prot private sector organization, PPAF enjoys facilitation and support from the Government of Pakistan, other multi & bilateral and corporate donors. PPAF aims to be the catalyst for improving quality of life, broadening range of opportunities and socio-economic mainstreaming of the poor and disadvantaged, especially women. PPAF works through an integrated approach, which is aligned closely with Pakistans commitment to the MDGs.
Project areas Message from CEO
The PPR is an exciting and challenging program for us at the Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund. With the Government of Italys unmitigated support, we are accessing 14 districts in the countrys most neglected and poverty stricken areas in KP, Balochistan and FATA. With this program, we hope to leverage earlier investments in community mobilization, livelihoods, infrastructure, health and education. The meticulous attention to detail that PPAF follows in all it donor programs-a detailed baseline study, project plans as per Community led planning tools and then third party impact, is being followed for the PPR. This is crucial so that the dierences before during and after our interventions are implemented can be observed. We hope to pave the path for other institutions that work in these areas by constantly sharing our partners best practices. In this manner, the PPR provides an opportunity to leverage the Government of Italys signicant contribution to Pakistan in the areas of livelihoods, agriculture value chains and heritage preservation. We are grateful to the continued technical assistance extended to us by the GoI for this program. The journey of ishq, ilm and amal (passion, knowledge and action) is indeed a challenging one-but for us at PPAF and our friends from the Government of Italy, its rewards in empowerment and stability far surpass the challenge. Village by village, Union Council by Union Council, we will InshaAllah transform the landscape of this country.

Programme Implementation - PPAF supports need based integrated programming through Community Physical Infrastructure (CPI), Water Energy and Climate Change (WECC), Education, Health & Nutrition (EHN), Disaster Preparedness & Management (DPM), and Livelihood, Employment & Enterprise Development. PPAF supports the community to develop sector specic Community Resource Persons (CRPs). It equips the community to establish relevant platforms to support each of the thematic sectors, e.g. Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs), Health Committees, Naukri ya Karobar Centres, Youth Centres, Loan Centres, Disaster Preparedness and Management Committees (DPMCs), etc. In addition to micro enterprises, the community is supported to establish social enterprises to address immediate social issues such as community schools, health centres, water purifying units, livestock and crop insurance, etc. Advocacy and lobbying with local government and other resource institutions is a critical intervention. Some key sectors that PPR will focus on include natural resource management, agriculture and livestock, horticulture, eco-tourism, crafts, processing and post harvest technologies, gems & minerals.
for Effective Socio-EconomicTransformation through Community DrivenDevelopment
Community Engagement - PPAF's Partner Organizations (POs) identify village based Community Resource Persons who are trained to lead community based dialogues on 'a vision for a quality life', Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), Sustainable Livelihood and Enterprise Development (SLED), and human rights and core institutional values. The intent is to create a passion (or CHAAH) for change, and ensure that the community is willing and able to invest in a 'togetherness' that will transcend beyond the life of the Programme.
Building Institutional Capacity - Community members are guided to establish and strengthen inclusive community institutions at mohallah, village and union council levels to conceptualize and undertake the required socio-economic transformation. A cadre of local Community Resource Persons (CRPs) is developed with expertise in management (nancial, human, procurement), gender, environment, governance, civic rights, networking, computer literacy, nancial literacy, and poverty ranking. The Village Organizations (VOs) and the Local Support Organizations (LSOs) are supported to register as formal entities and open bank accounts to allow formal nancial transactions.

Entering the Area - PPAF invests in developing the initial proles of the districts and Union Councils (UCs) where PPR would be implemented, so that the information guides programme design and serves as a critical baseline for eventual internal and external assessments and evaluations. PPAF's Partner Organizations (POs) and the community institutions continue to update the proles over the course
