Current Interventions

1.1 Women Political empowerment in UPPER DIR

Lawari humanitarian organization, identified the issue of absolute barring of women in upper dir as an area squarely un addressed. A team from LHO visited the area to observe and find out the underlying causes of the issue. To address the issue LHO engaged in partnership with FNF to resolve the issue on priority. Anticipating the imminent local body elections in May 2015 LHO and FNF successfully engaged the political stakeholders of upper dir in consultative dialogue and stimulating workshop at Islamabad. The district political representatives of all the political parties who had been previously parties in the barring of women from casting votes participated in the workshop. As outcome of the workshop the previous agreements were nullified by sealing new agreement allowing facilitating women participation in casting votes. Apart from it the district political stakeholders bent over the finding of causes, challenges and solutions to the women political empowerment at district upper dir. The workshop concluded in agreement of nullifying any contract barring women from elections. The workshop findings regarding the underlying causes were related to structural, governance, socio cultural and lack of materialization of the parties’ manifestoes from the perspective of women inclusion in true sense.

As an impact assessment the local body elections results proved that the activity was highly effective as 3500 women voters were recorded having casted their votes. The analysis depicts that the impact was majorly attributed to the nullifying of barring of women through contracts as immediate cause however to bring women participation at par with their men counter parts addressed of the other causes is highly important and inevitable.

For the purpose LHO and FNF continued its endurance to trickle down the effect to grass root level. Three workshops were arranged in three provincial constituencies (i.e. PK-91, 92 & 93) of District Upper Dir in which local body elected members, academia and members from state departments were sensitized about women right of political empowerment. Exercises were conducted to identify challenges, propose solutions and devise action plans/Recommendationa in order to help support the promotion of women political empowerment in the area.
