Integrated Rural Uplift Programme (IRUP) is a Non-Profit Organization established with the aim to help in improving the quality of life of rural communities through participatory approaches by including them in project cycle management.
IRUP did not come into existence suddenly. The aim of establishing a non-communal, non-political development organization having acceptance in the communities didn’t come suddenly rather the motives behind this concept was the volunteer spirit of its members who always wanted to work for the betterment of their native land. The socioeconomic conditions of rural dwellers and deplorable state of the social services, lack of basic amenities and poor infrastructure constantly instigated us to materialize this thought. It was conceived that a local organization which could serve the poor people without any discrimination is needed. To reach this mark and achieving the objective, series of individual interactions, idea sharing, meetings and dialogues were carried out. The formation of IRUP is fruit of these constant efforts and the organization came to existence in January, 2010 and registered with Registrar of joint stock Companies in March, 2012 with the slogan “Serve the Humanity” without any discrimination.
IRUP believes to work as a catalyst in building the capacities of rural communities, facilitate in linkages development to undertake poverty reduction and social uplift initiatives through community participation in rural areas.
IRUP facilitates the organizations at village level problems identification, resource identification & mobilization, needs prioritization, participatory planning and village profiling. The Village Development Documents (VDD) is a useful tool of the organization not only highlighting village level problems and issues rather it provide a broader knowledge of what, why, by whom and how can be done. 15 VDD are prepared by the IRUP while 3 UC level Need Documents prepared by IRUP to prioritize needs by the communities themselves. This is an ongoing process without any external support.
Very soon the organization was able to catch the attention of communities as well as some donor organizations. The landmark success was achieved when in 2011 the organization was selected as Implementing partner for a multi donor funded project. IRUP was tasked to undertake social mobilization assignments and also monitor and ensure community participation in the donor funded drinking water supply and sanitation schemes in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
It is always hard for local organization to carry out pro-community activities without having some projects but IRUP continued with its some low intensity activities. IRUP believes in community development through awareness and education and for the purpose carry out particular activities to aware communities and provide them basic & necessary information regarding different rural sectors and social services.
Aware, organized and self-reliance communities actively participating in developmental activities in their own best interest.
To achieve the above VISION; IRUP has the following Mission.
To be a prominent community owned organization, distinguishing itself by developing participatory approach, providing awareness and developmental service to the target group without any discrimination in order to achieve our Goal of Social Uplift through Awareness and poverty reduction
Social Economic Empowerment through Awareness and Poverty Reduction Initiatives.
