Though the losses in terms of means of production and infrastructure may apparently seem insignificant, yet these material losses bear paramount importance, for they undermine the ability of conflict survivors to subsist and recover. War affected and marginalized people need immediate steps for poverty alleviation and sustainability of livelihood patterns. To achieve this end, small projects will prove more beneficial than mega or more complicated projects. Working on capacity building projects during reconstruction phase is vital to ensuring sustainable development.
At present, such projects include:
· 21 poultry farms have started functioning and 9 more planned in immediate future. Average production of local chicken is over 8000 per flock.
· 7 Goat Farms have started functioining , whereas 2 Farms are in the pipeline.
· 4 cattle Farms have been established.
· 5 fish farms.
· 15 Bee hiving farms (having produced hundreds of KGs of Honey being marketed as “Waziristan Honey”). The Lab test report reveals that is has one of the best content value in the country.
· New project of Football stitching has recently started at Jandola, with 45 trainees. The footballs stitched here are not only locally used but will also be marketed from Sialkot.
