Society for Safe Environment and Welfare of Agrarians in Pakistan 
Community Capacity Development Programme
Community Capacity Development Programme (CCDP) is supported by TEAR Australia and is being implemented in 30 villages out of which 25 are in District Mirpurkhas and 05 are in District Umerkot. The Goal of the project is to develop human capacity and skill leading to empowered and decision making target communities. CCDP is focusing on developing more human capacities rather than facilitating the communities with hard inputs. Village Development Groups (VDGs) and Self Help Groups (SHGs) are now empowered enough that they are able to develop their Village Development plans for their villages. As an achievement, 3 villages of the CCDP has purchased their own land for their permanent residence. Now they are independent, and no one can force them to leave the area.  

Awareness raising on importance of CNIC, has enabled the communities to get them computerized national identity cards from NADRA. They are also registered in electoral process and are eligible to cast vote in the upcoming elections in 2018.  
This year on 12th June, 2017 CCDP team celebrated “World Day against Child Labor”. The day was celebrated at SSEWA-Pak Head Office. On the occasion, Assistant Director from Labor department, Assistant Director Social Welfare Department were the spokesperson of the event. Documentaries were showed, communities also presented their views regarding child labor, children performed dramas and participated in games and speeches.  

120 kitchen gardening activities were initiated in 12 villages and 10 different vegetable seeds were distributed among 120 beneficiaries for a year. By establishing kitchen gardens the community has filled in their dietary needs and are saving few money which is contributed in SHGs. The beneficiaries has established seed bank where they are saving seeds for the next season. The project has also focused environment, and 3,000 tree saplings were also distributed in 30 villages.
