Exposure Visits for Government and Local Bodies Elected Representatives

Under this activity the program arranges inter/intra district/province exposure visits for government and local bodies’ elected representatives to encourage learning from a diverse range of experiences. This activity will also help in building effective linkages between communities and the government. This activity is based on premise that while civil society organizations have the ability to demonstrate new approaches, it is the State, which has the resources to scale-up the interventions and reach majority of the population. Thus, these exposure visits will provide government representative an opportunity to engage with communities for development initiatives, solving problems and developing productive partnerships. An exposure visit was organized by district Swat office on 30th November 2016 in which 22 local elected members participated.
