Conduct Peer-to-Peer learning workshop and training on operating adult literacy centers for CSOs in target communities

Pakistan Centre for Philanthropy in partnership with AKF, is implementing a sub-project on “Enhancing Capacity of Local Organizations for Gender Inclusive Programming in Gilgit Baltistan” as part of a comprehensive project on Advancing Gender Equality through Civil society (AGECS). The sub-project has two targeted localities of Hunza and Diamer (Tehsils Aliabad and Chillas respectively). Both Tehsils have distinct socio-economic characteristics. Aliabad tehsil of District Hunza has better social infrastructure and organizations to support activities for improving gender equality and women empowerment. Whereas, Tehsil Chillas of District Diamer has relatively more traditional and less formal civil society organizations and have not been studied in detail earlier. To gather information on the existing formal and less formal Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), a mapping and organizational capacity assessment exercise has been carried out.

Based on the findings and analysis of the capacity assessment report, the capacity gaps of the CSOs have been identified and issues and challenges of gender equality and women empowerment are highlighted as well. On the basis of information, a 6-days training of CSOs would be conducted to enhance their capacity for gender inclusive programming and initiatives in local communities.
