Women Activists Present 22 Public Petitions

Public Day – Tehsil Mayor Abbottabad

A new DWSS was demanded for Village Gali Banian which does not have sufficient supply as it is at the tail-end of four villages that is served by an existing scheme. This was one of 22 public petitions presented by 10 women and 4 men from 7 local CSOs to the Tehsil Mayor Shuja Nabi at a Public Day held at the Mayor’s office in Abbottabad. The petitions also sought improvements in education, health and electricity supply. These were prepared by CSOs trained in Social Accountability by the Foundation under Fempower Pakistan. The Mayor reviewed the petitions, referred some to concerned departments and committed to taking action, as possible.
