Balochistan Rural Support Programme Fights COVID-19
Additional Chief Secretary ( ACS) – Mr. Hafiz Abdul Basit was given a tour of European Union funded BRACE Programme Community Physical Infrastructure Schemes in Union Council Khushab district Pishin. CEO-BRSP spoke about the importance of creating social capital through social mobilization to eradicate poverty at the household level. The ACS was truly impressed when a BRSP fostered LSO formed in 2015 spoke about their self-help initiatives and how the LSO has been able to mobilize resources from the Government as well as other international donors by being organised into Community Institutions. The ACS got convinced that BRSP’s approach should be replicated across Balochistan and could be budgeted in PSDP. The ACS reiterated that the only way the Government of Balochistan can improve service delivery is by organising the rural poor into Community Institutions to harness their potential.
