Support Women's Peacebuilding in Pakistan.This project aims are to increase women's political participation in the face of extremism and conflict in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and the Provincially Administered Tribal Areas (PATA). Women are underrepresented at all levels of decision-making and their needs related to the conflict are not being sufficiently addressed in these areas. This project will empower women through documentation, political training, and the creation of a forum where they can voice their concerns to policymakers.
