Inauguration KF Kachai Project
In a well attended ceremony, Masud Afridi bhaijan Deputy Inspector General, Kohat region and Justice (retd.) Syed Ibne Ali (former Chief Justice, Peshawar High Court) inaugurated the KF lead Kachai Protection wall (bandh) project on Saturday, 24th September on the project site in Kachai. KF requested Masud bhaijan for inauguration as a Kohatian, while Justice Syed Ibne Ali is an Associate Life Member of the KF. KF President, Ikram bhaijan was expected to join the event, however he had to change plans due to his travel for another engagement.
The ceremony was also attended by Dr Shad Ali Khattak bhaijan, a Kohatian who is the EDO Health in Kohat these days and Dr Affan, another kohatian based in Kohat and working with UNFPA. Saad Gillani, the relevant staff from ILO office in Islamabad also was present.
This project has been developed by Kohatians Foundation in collaboration with and on the demand of the local population. The project is funded by International Labor Organisation. Manzoor Khaliq has been very helpful in planning and design of the project and in getting it funded. The requirements of ILO for funding projects are many and we had to pass through various stages of discussions, community dialogue and scrutiny within ILO before the project was approved.
Project: Employment Recovery Through Rehabilitation of Agriculture
Continuing our efforts to evolve into a broad based organisation, KF has recently reached an agreement with International Labor Organisation to enhance livelihoods of the population affected by the floods of 2010 in the Kachai area of district Kohat.
The area has a population of about 20,000. During the floods of last year a protection 'bandh' (dam) was washed away due to which the sources of water was seriously affected. The fields and orchards irrigated by the reservoir dried out and many people of the area were forced to migrate. As we had done some work with ILO previously, we approached the ILO for funding of reconstruction of the reservoir.
International Labor Organisation (ILO) Cash for Work Project
The Kohatians Foundation recieved a funding of $8000 from the International Labor Organisation (ILO) for a Cash for Work project. The activities have been implemented and the final report submitted to ILO. The Final Report is attached for information. While this is a small project, such small projects will develop the portfolio and learning of the KF enabling it to bid for ever larger projects.
Kohatians Foundation's special gratitude to Ikram Ghani, our President and Manzoor Khaliq for their support and guidance.
Dr Syed Zulfiqar Ali
