There is a significant change in the behavior of community women and children after the start of the Health and Hygiene (HH) awareness sessions in the villages and schools. KCDA plans to motivate women and children at the villages and community levels through different Participatory Rural Appraisals (PRAs) in the future.
On an annual basis the KCDA health staff conduct a health survey among children in the fifteen primary schools. The purpose of the survey is to check the physical growth of the children year by year.
During the period of 2013 through 2019, Kachhi community development Programme trained 94 midwives who are now working in their communities.
In 2012, KCDA took the initiative of presenting a self-help approach. (This approach assisted women in developing their own savings program…) The initiative started with a short meeting with Ms. Kiran Shahzadi (SHG National Coordinator, KNH) at the end of April 2012. Initially KCDA targeted only one district, Tando Allahyar, but at the present KCDA is working in Mirpurkhas district as well.
There are 46 women’s SHGs functioning successfully with 610 active members. The total savings is 216,430/= (Rs?). The women are getting a loan from their SHG and starting small businesses. 15 women obtained a loan from a SHG and started their own small business. Women develop confidence from the SHGs and now they make decisions in their groups.
KCDA organized a session with the Kachhi community regarding the issue of early child marriages. For this issue, KCDA advocacy staff attended network meetings with other partners during the year. These local partners made a lot of effort and approached local government institutions. In the advocacy program six clusters were formed and 90 community people are now voluntarily working with KCDA. 10 area animators are working in three districts.
