Local Governance

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

CODE PAKISTAN is striving to engage in district development planning and propose new dimensions of local governance, development, and education. We plan to initiate “Public Opinion Polls – POP” among the rural population on questions of economic & social importance, and to engage local community organizations in exploring the vital role of the nonprofit sector in conducting such research.

CODE PAKISTAN is endeavoring to facilitate grass-root educational activities that result in promoting honest, transparent, and fair practices in government and help increase government responsiveness, while decreasing instances of waste and abuse. We intend to highlight, through periodic reports, the importance of applying high standards of transparency and accountability in establishing long-term democratic and economic prosperity at district levels.

CODE PAKISTAN responded—in collaboration with another not for profit organization—to the request for support of the district headquarters (DHQ) hospital in Chitral recently, because we believe in improving efficiency of public institutions at the local levels through locally-motivated, and locally-inspired initiatives.
