Keep the Help Coming this World Refugee Day!

June 20, 2021

Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund (PPAF), a leading institution focused on eliminating poverty in Pakistan is undertaking remarkable efforts for uplifting Afghan refugees in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan. PPAF’s poverty graduation approach merges elements of social mobilization, livelihood development and financial inclusion, combining support for immediate needs with longer term support for the development of human capital and assets. PPAF piloted its Poverty Graduation Program (PGP), funded by UNHCR in 2019 in Swabi, KP and Pishin, Balochistan. In 2020, the program was expanded to Mansehra, KP and Chagi, Balochistan. All these districts were prioritized for intervention by UNHCR due to presence of high number of refugees and extreme levels of poverty and socio-economic inequality.
