Expansion of Model Village – Basti Dayat

Project Overview

After the success of the construction of a model village at Kot Addu in Basti Ghareebabad, Association for the Development of Pakistan (ADP) is really excited to support Sahara for Life Welfare Trust in the construction of another model village in Basti Dayat, at a distance 0.5km away. Many people have been without shelter since the devastating floods of 2010. ADP will be building an additional 12-14 houses to help these families.

Basti Dayat is a very small village in the Muzzafargarh district with no access to electricity and other basic infrastructure (in addition to being largely ignored by major aid agencies in the aftermath of the floods in 2010). The town is very close to the banks of two rivers, so the damage from the floods to people’s houses was quite severe.

Once a model village has been constructed, the beneficiaries can begin to make the slow and difficult transition towards routine life, and more targeted assistance can be provided by other NGOs operating in the region. The primary beneficiaries of this project will be households providing labor at nearby factories and brick kilns; the average household size at the selected village is 12 people and an additional 12-14 households will benefit from the project, with a total of 144 beneficiaries.
