--Balochistan Rural Support Programme Fights COVID-19
Balochistan Rural Support Programme (BRSP), and National Rural Support Programme (NRSP) organised a Provincial Convention of Local Support Organisations (LSOs) of Balochistan in Quetta, on January 21, 2020. The Provincial Convention of LSOs of Balochistan was able to achieve its objective by providing a platform for LSOs to present their achievements to a wider audience. The community activists, especially women community members, presented challenges they faced and lessons they have learnt while taking self-help initiatives. The forum proved to be beneficial as it highlighted the LSOs’ role in improving access to public sector services by establishing synergies and accountability with the local government. The local government’s prominent stakeholders attended the event including Government officials, political parties, and donors.
