The Change Makers ( Grantee Name : Khwendo Kor (KK) )

Started On 16 June, 2015 Ended On 15 June, 2016

Brief Project Description

The 12 months project supported by DAI/AAWAZ and implemented by KK aimed to build the capacity of 60 change makers from different areas of KP and FATA (students, social activists, teachers, media persons and transgender) through a fellowship program on the concept of muscularity to contribute towards a peaceful and tolerant society in their respective communities. The change makers were tasked to design and implement activities to replicate the knowledge from the fellowship in their communities. A project learning document , highlighting some of the best practices, challenges encountered and methodology of the project interventions was developed  for wider dissemination of the learnt knowledge and a convention at provincial level in Peshawar was arranged to give an opportunity to the change makers to share their experiences and learning from the fellowship program.
