These projects will encompass mainly advocacy, gender and governance related soft interventions/campaigns/researches etc. implemented mutually by FAs and HELPFoundation with technical guidance by Oxfam Novib. However in District Rahim Yar Khan, the proposed intervention will address the basic steps for rehabilitating the food security which was significantly hit by flood 2010 and damaged a large tract of geographical area of standing crops.
