  • Insect foggers at UC level
  • Monitoring & Evaluation
  • Employment generation, job placement
  • Databank/Mapping
  • Safe Drinking Water
  • Proper sewage and waste management
  • School Management
  • Vocational Training/Skills Development
  • Agriculture, Livestock and Dairy based issues and projects

1. Water & Sanitation

Most of the villages in the area were established in 1920’s and 30’s. There was no septic tank system or a sewage system setup at that time and this has now become a major problem for the villages and even metropolitan areas of the Punjab and other provinces. The raw sewage has started draining in the natural aquifer. Due to this issue we have a huge problem of infectious diseases and viral outbreaks in rural and city areas. We can see hepatitis and various form of gastrointestinal diseases each year. To address this problem the villages have to install water and sewage treatment plants.

Due to WLO’s efforts, the World Bank approved a project to install twenty three water treatment stations, one for each UC (23) in Tehseel Burewala, District of Vehari. This served a great portion of the population and improved local health and hygiene standards.

2. Panacea Project: Model Union Council, UC-85 /Pilot Project

The eradication of poverty and hunger calls for a concerted effort that begins at the basic level, from the bottom up and the top down. Successful efforts to generate economic growth and well-being start at the grassroots level with Sustainability, CapacityBuilding and the principles of good governance. Moreover, strong quantitative measures to monitor the results over the life of the project are essential.

WLO conceived the Panacea Project® with these ideas in mind.  This project, currently set up in the UC-85 of the Vehari District, encompasses the United Nations’ Global Goals and works towards achieving every goal in our target area. Initially limited to two villages, it has expanded to the whole Union Council, serving as a model for future replication in other geographic areas.

Panacea Project® works to bring economic growth by involving the communities in the process, mobilizing members to act in the interest of their own community and providing a sense of ownership that is crucial to the long-term success of the endeavor.

Attitudes and behaviors are intricately linked to the problems we are trying to solve. Working simultaneously on all fields creates a coordinated, well-planned development program.  Panacea Project® has six major areas of concern:

  • Economic Growth
  • Education & Training
  • Empowering Women & Minorities
  • Healthcare
  • Environment
  • Community Development

Sustainability is the goal of all the decisions in the project, and consistent capacity building, awareness of the issues, and community participation along with local ownership and behavioral change are emphasized.

The PanaceaProject is tailored towards local cultural and economic practices, keeping the assets and abilities of our target group in perspective.

In this project we have conducted a detailed village profile of two hundred and seven villages covering the whole of the rural area in Tehseel Burewala. This is one of a kind pilot project with a detailed information available on the public domain for the use of the general public.
