With technical expertise of Uks Research Centre, the Foundation produced and broadcast 15 radio programmes projecting good practices in budget transparency and social accountability from its project: Citizen Engagement for Responsive & Accountable Governance (2017-20), funded by the EU. The programmes had a nationwide outreach: aired on 14 FM-101 stations of Abbottabad, Peshawar, Kohat, Bannu, Peshawar, D. I. Khan (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), Quetta (Balochistan), Karachi, Hyderabad (Sindh), Lahore, Multan, Rawalpindi, (Punjab), Gilgit and Islamabad.
“With the Foundation we organized a khuli kutchery in Swat’s Khwazakhela area in April 2019 in which more than 100 public petitions for improvements in government services were presented to public representatives and government officials attending the event,” said Mr. Sher Bahadur, a local activist in Swat. He said that skills in social accountability helped them engage more confidently and effectively with the government. He narrated their success in getting a small bridge constructed over a storm water drain so that children could easily reach their school during rains. The radio programmes showcased such success stories from 12 KP districts in which the project was implemented.
