Post-flood skills training in Pakistan

In May 2012, Y Care International supported Church World Service-Pakistan/Afghanistan (CWS-P/A) to implement a disaster recovery project in Sindh province that aimed to rebuild the lives of young people affected by the floods in 2010 and 2011.

Before the floods, Sindh province in southern Pakistan was ranked as one of the poorest areas of the country. The devastating floods caused widespread damage affecting over 20 million people nationwide with Sindh being the worst affected province.

The project aimed to improve livelihood opportunities and welfare of flood-affected families through vocational training for young men at a Construction Trades Training Centre (CTTC) run by CWS-P/A. The following findings and recommendations are based on an internal evaluation of the project carried out 12 months after the CTTC trainees had graduated.
