A joint project of “The NGO World Pakistan” and Light House Association Turkey
Background: Sobay wala was a village of UC kotla Haji shah of District Layyah comprising of almost 500 families. During the devastating floods of 2010 almost half of the populations lost their house along with land due to erosion. Affected families were living in borrowed homes of big landlords where they were continuously under mental and social stress especially women and children were facing hardships.
“The NGO World Foundation (TNW) “identified such families and put efforts to resettle them. Some targeted families and being given proper shelter (construction of homes). These houses are built on a single shared location (kukar wala) like a small village with other facilities especially proper sewerage and arrangements for clean water. TNW is providing A-class construction material along with technical services of its engineers while community is participating by providing skilled and un-skilled labour.
The beneficiaries have given the name “Light House Village” to this small village because whole project is funded by Light House Association (Deniz Feneri) of Turkey.
