For this initiative to reduce poverty and rural development, the provincial govt has worked with the European Union (EU). The EU finances the project in the context of its Sindh Union Council and SUCCESS Programe.

In a recent effort to participate important stakeholders, the interested officials have organized a workshop on the programe. A pilot rural development center will be established in Sujawal district by the govt.

The center for rural development is a part of a collection of settlements that provide products and facilities both for their people and the neighboring regions. This strategy results in small unit costs and large-scale savings.

As a consequence of ongoing commitment, dialog and debate among diverse stakeholders recognized during the initial phase, poverty alleviation has been created.
