1.   Background

Doaba Foundation is a humanitarian organization, certified by Pakistan Centre of Philanthropy (PCP), working in disaster prone areas with the vision “Disaster prone communities becoming self-reliant in pursuit of their common interests”. Doaba’s mission is to improve the quality of life among rural people and, it concentrates on communities prone to disaster. It believes in achieving the goal through optimal utilization of available resources i.e. physical-biological, moral and human. It seeks to build capacities of such communities incorporating even the relief activities into program of preparedness interventions, facilitating emergence of self-reliant communities.

Doaba Foundation with the support of CBM International implemented a project titled “Community Based Inclusive Development (CBID) project in eight union councils (Qasba Gujrat, Budh, Alurid, Thatha Gurmani, Ghazi Ghat, Sharif Chajra, Karam Dad Qureshi, Mehmood kot) of district Muzaffargarh. The duration of CBID project was three year programme and it was a multi-sectoral initiative which included community empowerment to promote inclusion, Inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction (IDRR), Inclusive Primary Health, Inclusive livelihoods, Inclusive Primary Health and other activities to improve the living conditions of person with disabilities in the selected union councils of Tehsil Kot-Addu and Muzaffargarh.

The persons with disabilities were at the center of the project. The main thrust of CBID project was the inclusion of persons with disabilities in all aspects of social, economic, political and cultural life. CBID programme through the planned interventions will pushed the agenda of disability inclusive development and enhanced the effective and full participation of persons with disabilities in local development and resilience processes.
