INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT

SWO rural support programmes have made significant investments in micro, small and medium infrastructure that often complement the SWO health and education initiatives, including irrigation canals, mini-hydropower plants, roads and bridges.  These investments are intended to unlock the economic potential of often seriously isolated communities and regions in which SWO works.  Highlights include: Support for more than 3,800 infrastructure projects that benefit nearly 1.2 million people in Pakistan; 5 bridges that connect Tajikistan and Afghanistan; and more than 1,800 infrastructure projects in Afghanistan.
