EU-RSPN Capacity Building of Local Grassroots Organisations in Governance, Transparency and Gender Sensitisation

The link between communities (especially in rural areas) and the government has always been weak especially in today’s Pakistan. Grassroots organisations such as Local Support Organisations (LSOs) which operate at the union council level and are federations of communities’ organisations at the neighbourhood and village level aim to decrease this gap. This is done by ensuring that the developmental needs of their communities are heard by government representatives as well as NGOs, donors and the private sector.
