1. Introduction & Background

Today Pakistan is faced with numerous problems of poverty, poor governance, political instability and ever increasing population growth. Due to all these factors the Governments ability to respond to peoples needs is diminishing every day. Over the last 30 years the gap between public sector and the communities has also significantly increased. Since 1980s citizen sector has emerged and evolved as a third sector in addition to public and private sectors gradually increasing its contribution in the development sector by bridging gaps between public sectors and grass roots communities as well as investing directly. This sector is providing services in a range of activity sectors especially poverty reduction and population control by organizing community groups. The Government policies and practices have also improved because of the advocacy campaigns by the NGOs and citizen groups in favor of vulnerable gender VIZ: women, children, minorities and other secluded communities. SAFWCO is contributing its share in development of marginalized communities since 1986. It has emerged as a trustworthy development partner for more than 1,000 community organizations of marginalized groups like minorities, men and women, children and farmer groups. Hence, SAFWCO is fully aware about the fact; rural development is not sustainable without active and meaningful participation of the people in development programs initiated by SAFWCO in those areas. Effective social mobilization and capacity building programs play a crucial role in strengthening the participation of these communities in the Integrated Development Planning (IDP) process and for sustainable rural development. Effective and meaningful participation by people staying in the rural areas will add more value to the process; however this will only happen if they have all the necessary knowledge and skills. It is therefore important to develop integrated development plans (IDP) modules to capacitate the people staying in the rural areas to participate effectively in the IDP process. Using the Integrated approach, SAFWCO assisted the community members to form into groups and provided them training and access to development resources that includes material support. These inputs built community groups confidence and capacity to participate in development activity. This participation in turn has helped public sector (government) organizations and philanthropic and welfare agencies both in citizen and corporate sector to reach out to the poor, the weak and the most vulnerable through their own programs. As a result of this working together strategy, development activities have become more meaningful and positive impacts are clearly visible on peoples lives.

2. Rational
Basically our strategic integrated plan aims to develop an aligned and integrated organization in which every member and partner organization could get a clear understanding of the overall strategy and objectives of the organization and how their individual contribution could supports the organization. However, it also focuses our resources on strategic objectives that are a priority and make decisions to discontinue certain activities if they do not support our strategic objectives. As Safwco aims to reduce the poverty through empowering and developing communities to fight against poverty, unfortunately it is widespread in Pakistan and predominantly a rural phenomenon, mostly such population depends on agriculture for their livelihoods. Many of them have inadequate access to basic services such as safe drinking water, primary health care, education and other social services. Poverty rates fell in the 1970s and early 1980s but rose again towards the end of the 1990s. According to the Government of Pakistans poverty reduction strategy paper, currently about 10 per cent of the population is chronically poor, but a much larger part of the population (about 33 per cent) is considered vulnerable and likely to sink into poverty in the event of an external shock such as floods, drought or earthquake. Despite improvements in economic conditions after recent reforms, there are still broad discrepancies in social standing between men and women. Illiteracy is high among women and girls. In rural areas 22 per cent of girls above 10 have completed primary schooling, compared to 47 per cent of boys. Women own fewer assets, have limited economic options and less access to social services. Yet many play a major role in the household economy and in providing care for their families. Their burden of labor increases significantly when poor agricultural productivity forces migrate to find work. The incidence of poverty varies between rural and urban areas, and from one province to the next. Further, Safwco adopted consolidated integrated approachs main objective is to reduce the poverty and address the issues at community level. This involved implementation of key sector interventions through the community development organizations in the areas of social development, providing micro credit facility to generate better income, facilitating in different other areas such as health, education, community physical infrastructure and disaster risk reduction.

8.1. Social Development:

Social Development Sector has shouldered the responsibility of institutional building at grassroots level to support in bringing about a social change, thus taking the vulnerable and marginalized communities to the sustainable stage of development and self-reliance. It has social mobilization as a core activity and entry point followed by different development interventions including social and physical service delivery projects and coordinating and networking along with emphasis on gender balance, inclusion of youth, disabled, minorities and good governance. The main objects of the program are to mainstream the poor into a socio-economic development process and reduce their vulnerability.

a. Salient objectives:
Enable democratic and participatory action resulting in institutionalizing social justice, as a basis of socio-economic development Make VDOs development oriented , sustainable and responsive to local needs and priorities Highlight social Development issues, gender discrimination, governance and globalization; and create a forum for discussion and broad-based partnership to make some efforts for the solution of these issue

b. Major Areas of Importance:

Community Based Organizational Development Social Services Program Gender and Development Natural Resources Management

c. Social Mobilization Process:

Safwco has used social mobilization, since the initial stage, as a tool to empower community to organize them into self-governing groups, or community organizations, and initiate and control their own personal and communal development. In this context a well development social mobilization model is followed. Social mobilization model of Safwco encompasses dynamic and spacious community partaking as mandatory for gaining ownership, in a way to make innovations not seen as externally imposed. Safwco believes that unless the communities are well organized in the form of organizations (VDOs), no intercessions and initiatives can successfully be followed for development at grassroots level. Thus spiraling to the communities to sustainable parameters is pivotal and paramount ambition that Safwco has been pursing. In order to procure at the envisaged stage of sustainability of the communities, Safwco follows effectual and enduring touchstone mechanism. 9 | SAFWCO Integrated Development Plan Module

d. Advocacy on Social Issues:

Sindh particularly is suffering from several social issues such as child labor, indebtedness of Haris, violence against women, violations of human rights, non-participation of poor and socially disadvantaged groups, in governance, inter-community bloody feuds and rising incidents of suicides. Safwco being a member of civil society cannot remain isolated from the pressing social issues of Sindhi society. Thus right from its establishment, Safwco has been on forefront in doing advocacy against the social ills like karo-kari and human rights violations. With increasing unemployment and poverty, population and underdevelopment in rural areas particularly in remote regions, Safwco has become active in advocacy on social issues, and it: Publish weekly newspaper Samaji Dunya in Sindhi on social issues. Organizes workshops on Gender sensitization and violence against women in district headquarters Trains civil society activists on ending Karo-kari Represents the problems of people on the highest forums of the government and development community Networks with other civil society organizations on social issues Produces reports and pamphlets on social issues

Information dissemination is one aspect of awareness rising among the civil society and organizations. Safwco has published more than 238 booklets, pamphlets and flyers for information dissemination. 10 | SAFWCO Integrated Development Plan Module

e. Communities Participation and Input: The very crux of getting the communities directly involved in development initiatives is to pave ground where they feel obsessed with the delusion of grandeur leading to the sense of ownership and responsibility among them.

f. Human Resources and Gender Development:

Prior to mobilizing and generating natural resources in physical environ, Safwco deems indispensable to nurture the human resources in terms of skills and expertise among the communities. If people are not capable of handling the natural resources, it falls flat to rejuvenate the resources; it falls flat to rejuvenate the resources available at their disposal. It believes in the philosophy of providing equal opportunities to men and women without any discrimination. As the women of rural areas are the most ignored section of society, therefore it focuses on development of women through gender ladder activities and creating an enabling environment for their socio economic growth leading towards their empowerment. Thus the objective of gender development program is to balance gender gap and promote active involvement of women for their leadership development. In this context, Safwco since its inception has been in the forefront in raising voice, via seminars, workshops, walks and publications, against the heinous and atrocious form of injustice clothed in term of honor killing to women in the rural areas of Sindh.

g. Coordination and Linkages:

After the institutionalization of communities with men women as active actors, it is vital that they should have easy access to and linkage with service delivery sectors of Safwco and all the departments and organizations (Government and non-government) which are likely to be of some support for them. Safwco builds such bridges between the communities and support organizations, governments, donor agencies, academic and research institutes engaged in similar pursuit for information and experience sharing mutual collaboration.

8.7. Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Relief:

In view of the recent drought like conditions in Pakistan especially in Sindh and the frequent floods and cyclones in the coastal area of western Sindh, Safwco has established a disaster management and emergency relief sector that is consigned with the doing strategic planning about how can disaster be adequately dealt with at the minimum risk to human life and natural resources. This sector provides emergency relief services and build the capacity of the communities to withstand the disaster consequences attempting at the mitigating its divesting effects. This sector has three-fold role in disaster management: Disaster Preparedness: Before the onset of any disaster, it is necessary that the disaster prone people should be prepared to face it effectively so that panic like situation should not appear aggravating the aftermath of the disaster prone population are involved in all the activities so that they could be relieved on priority basis. Information System: A dynamic information system is established where updates are collected via various sources and disseminated to the communities and other organizations working In the same area. Institutional framework: Disaster management committee, participatory platform and organization are formed with linkage with line department so as to access in condition of emergency. Response Mechanism: In case of emergency, a dynamic response mechanism plays vital role to lessen the disastrous consequences. The DPER cell is endeavoring to manage for such a response mechanism in collaboration with the communities and government agencies. Disaster Mitigation: Currently the DPER cell provides Services to the drought trodden people of desert and coastal area. Whereas the following activities underway drought mitigation measures include: a. Construction of wells b. Installation of Deep And Shallow Hand Pumps c. Construction of Water Storage Reservoirs d. Management Local Resources e. Institutionalization of Community Organizations f. Societal Framework g. Conflict Resolution Measures h. Installation of Water Conservation Technologies Disaster Response: To respond the intensifying drought condition, the DPER cell is facilitating the communities trough the following ways: a. Local Warning and Communication Systems b. Disaster Assessment (Drought Assessment Research) c. Evacuation Measures 19 | SAFWCO Integrated Development Plan Module

d. Emergency Relief e. Logistics and Supply Natural Disaster is the consequence or effect of a hazardous event, occurring when human activities and natural phenomenon (a physical event, occurring when human activities and natural phenomenon (a physical event, such as a volcanic eruption, earthquake, landslide etc. that does not affect human beings) become enmeshed. The resulting fatalities or property damages depend on the capacity of the population to support or resist the disaster Drought is an extended period where water availability falls below the statistical requirements for a region. Drought is not a purely physical phenomenon, but instead is interplay between natural water availability and human demands for water supply.

8.8. Planning and Monitoring:

Monitoring, Evaluation and Research (MER) Program is given a high priority in Safwco approaches and program delivery. It provide a better means of learning from the past experiences, improving upon service delivery, planning and allocation of resources, and demonstrating result as a part of accountability to key stakeholders. The major aim of the program is to improve program efficiency in implementation and financial aspects. MER Unit is also responsible for conducting different research studies in the program areas of the organization or at wider provincial level as needed. It conducts multi-disciplinary studies on poverty alleviation, socio-economic development and institutional reforms. The following activities are carried out by this unit: Mid-term Evaluations Impact Assessment of different program Field Surveys for benchmarking data Project-end evaluation Social Researches Socio Economic Analysis and Exploratory Researches

Scope of Monitoring and Evaluation within Safwco:

Monitoring and evaluation help improve performance and achieve results. More precisely, the overall purpose of monitoring and evaluation is the measurement and assessment of performance in order to more effectively manage the outcomes and output known as development result. Performance is defined as progress toward and achievement of result. As part of the emphasis on result in Safwco today, the need to demonstrate performance is placing new demands on monitoring and evaluation in program units. The main objectives of result-oriented monitoring and evaluation are to: Enhance organization and development leaning; Ensure informed decision-making; Support substantive accountability and repositioning.

20 | SAFWCO Integrated Development Plan Module

Stages of monitoring (Safwco Products):

Outcome Monitoring: Outcome monitoring is a continual and systemic process of collecting and analyzing data to measure the performance of Safwco intervention toward achievement of outcomes. While the process of outcome monitoring is continual in the sense that it is not a time-bound activity, outcome monitoring must be periodic, so that change can be periodic, so that change can be perceived. In other words, MER Unit Accumulates information on an ongoing basis regarding progress towards an outcome, and then periodically compares the current situation against the baseline for outcome indicators and assesses and analyzes the situation.

Outcome Evaluation: An outcome evaluation is an evaluation that covers a set of related projects,
programs and strategies intended to bring about a certain outcome. Such evaluations assess how and why outcomes are or are not being achieved in a given context and the role Safwco has played. They may also help to clarify underlying factors affecting the situation, highlight unintended consequences (positive and negative), recommend action to improve performance in future programming, and generate lessons learned. These periodic and in depth assessments use before and after monitoring data.
