About the Report:
The report caters brief description of the outcomes from various interventions carried in year 2009. This year possess a significant position in the overall institutional journey of IDSP, as IDSP completed the first decade of its existence. IDSP continues its tradition of constant action and reflection since its inception (1998) which has figured out several modes of deliverable as a learning institution for Human Resource Development at local, national and regional levels. Some of the general milestones IDSP crossed during its initial decade are: IDSP developed a core team of faculty members who gradually attained a holistic perspective of development and change both in terms of theory and practice. It developed core thematic areas which comprehend and analyze the complex situation of development and modernity pervading poverty, oppression, exploitation, and violence as its inherent thrusts. A cadre of more than 1000 male/female from the over all country, including learners, interns and fellows have been developed who represent IDSP and contribute in the development and empowerment process of people and communities. IDSP established its programming office in QuettaBalochistan, within the premises of TDSP assert which has proven and contributed a lot in the sustainability of IDSPs interventions. The process of Programmatic development initially started in 2001 which gained high value in the process of delivering the planned targets. In the result of IDSP's first retreat in June 2004 the programs were deconstructed and gradually the idea of independent faculty and fellowship was evolved. In the year 2005-6 the concept of fellowship was materialized and the over all learning and practice patterns of the institution was put on the logic of providing fellowships to the individual who will practice their dreams and ideas as independent entrepreneurs. The main purpose of the fellowship is to support the motivated individuals so that they can integrate their personal and professional aspirations for the greater purpose of positive social change and empowerment of the people and communities. In this connection the individuals with their thrusts of creating programs, developing human resources and institutional building took their leadership in respective areas. There are several programs which have been established, interventions are matured and IDSP linkage as civil society organization has been diversified. This report reflects significant features of the year 2009. This year the fellowships awarded for institutional development have emerged with a vivid visibility. Raziq Fahim and Ilyas Idneryass, the founding faculty members were provided fellowships for materializing their ideas of incepting and stemming organizations.

Director's Message Dear Friends,
The annual report of IDSP helps in the reflecting the past year. The year of 2009 was a time of launching transitions and recreating spaces for the young people of Balochistan. The fellows of IDSP demonstrated extra ordinary leadership in their areas and programs. Two sets of fellows has emerged, one who are working on their ideas and developing these in to programs on their own by being independent fellows. The others set are of those fellows who are pursuing their ideas and concepts from within IDSP. Most of the internal fellows are women and are engaged in programming and developing IDSP from within as a sustainable leadership institution for Balochistan. The internal fellows are in the mainstream management of IDSP . While external fellows do not have any direct management responsibility of IDSP' management or its sustainability. It is interesting to see that it is the women and younger men who are now taking the leadership of IDSP'S programs, raising funds, management role and networking.IDSP has today 24 internal fellows, 17 are women who are now developing a major programs women leadership program for Balochistan. Leading learners and community partnership programs, rights based initiatives. While the internal male fellows focus on academic development programs, resource mobilization and livelihood programs, external fellows work is reaching numbers while internal fellows are engaged in building programs, systems and sustainability from within IDSP as an institution of practice based leadership and community based development. IDSP's space as an institution of young leadership and development is at a very interesting point in its institution building processes. This diversity of IDSP in programs, management structures and identity of individuals is a very interesting and full of learning for a student of organization management and systems in an emerging and transition civil society like Balochistan. Creating, nurturing, and keeping stability with sustainability is the challenge that IDSP has to deal within an educational reflective manner. As a practitioner I am very pleased to see these exciting and educating times

Nurturing Individuals
Fellowships for Growth and Leadership
Creating Spaces through awarding Fellowships
The learning journey of institution and individual energies support each other. At the eve of its 10 years completion (2008), IDSP synthesized its practices of Human Resource Development into a more compelling methodology of Fellowships. As defined it in the working paper, “Fellowship is a learning opportunity for the motivated individuals who have their vision, ideas and commitments for social development”. It could also define as purpose, which “addresses social concern with individual aims by creating opportunities of self growth and professional development”. IDSP expands its outreach by providing fellowships to its learners and fellows so that they can put their efforts for utilizing their ideas into concrete actions. An internal Course for Professional Development has been devised to ensure institutional support to all the selected fellows. The course is comprised of three thematic pillars, ranging from individual development, covering areas of program development and finally culminating on the area of institutional development. This process comprises both theory and practices which each fellow define as part of his/her learning contract. In order to systematize the process and outcomes each fellow goes through a process of assessment and individual tutorials. The institute could analyze its support as per the emerging needs of the fellows. Besides continuing its support to its previously selected fellows, IDSP provided fellowships to some of its learners in their areas of interest and actions. Additionally, internal fellowships also took its momentum, while programs' fellows continued their pace in developing the portfolios of their respective programs. Despite the fact that Balochistan has been going through acute political unrest, the fellows continued their passions and were able to achieve some
Page 7

The good news is that some of the fellowships provided in the previous fellowships moved from its embryonic state to a mature state of institutional development. This report caters the outcomes of each fellowship projects, along with its learning trajectories and achievements so far.

Connection the Passion and profession Internal Development Course for IDSP faculty
Year 2009 was fully focused on the practices of the fellows of Internal Course for Professional Development (ICPD) while two refreshers training were conducted for the fellows during the year 2009. Purpose of ICPD is to develop the capacity of IDSP internal fellows in individual, programmatic and institutional building and to enable them to work on their ideas by reconnecting themselves with their roots. IDSP has defined fellowship as a learning opportunity for the motivated individuals who have their vision, ideas, commitment for social development. Internal Course for professional development started during the month of August, 2008. The concept of this course was written by founding director of IDSP around the concept of individual, program development and institution building by the young people. During the year 2008 15 days long theoretical session was organized by the faculty where the entire district based fellows participated. By the end of the course all the fellows developed their practicing assignment. During the year 2009 all the fellows continued practices of self, family, program development and initiated the process of institutional building. It was overall a rich experience for the fellows that enhanced their understanding on program development. Khuzdar, Mastung, Sibi and Pishin districts initiated the process of institution building and program development in the campuses. We believe that these institutions will emerge local institutions at grassroots level. ICPD has organized two review and reflection sessions for the fellows and provided opportunity to the fellows to have tutorials with their mentors and get feedback from them to enhance their learning and develop their 2009 learning contracts. ICPD has organized three days workshop on creative writing skills for the fellows of IDSP. This activity was a joint venture of IDSP and Pakistan Press Foundation (PPF). 30 fellows participated in this event and got the skills of writing to express their feeling and thoughts through writing articles. Each fellow is supposed to submit their quarterly report to his/her mentor, All the fellows submit their reports to their mentors and IDSP has established an integrated committee to review these reports. The integration committee has reviewed the reports and shared the feedback with the fellows and helped them to develop their next learning plan and incorporated the activities which need to be part of their plan in the coming quarter.

“Mahjabeen works as a research and teaching coordinator in IDSP campus. Her learning journey started back in 2005 when she joined mainstreaming gender and development course 2005. She is now continuing as research and teaching coordinator in the same program of IDSP and the impact she had brought to her community defines as follows”

I was born in a town of Pishin in 1988. Like other traditional cities Pishin is also surrounded by the various villages. The people from various villages have gradually settled, therefore many different tribes and clans, ethnic and religious groups are always observed. Luckily I and my elder sister were first in our family to step out for formal schooling. As it was strict and forbidden in the society because schooling is always associated to something economic development and employments. But my parents decided to support our education keeping in mind in the hard social environment for women mobility. After the primary education it was very hard to continue but despite the conservative environment my parents and teachers always encouraged me to continue my learning and education. Though the women mobility has never been an issue in my city but due to the various political factors the local cultural values has deformed me like countless other school going girls faced the hard challenge to sustain their mobility for education. While collecting my thoughts in this learning journey, I remembered, women mobility for job and education is an unlawful subject; I started believing all the stereotypes which were fake and socially constructed. The stereotype regarding the role and chastity of working women was disclosed fake during my schooling. By constant support of my family I was able to think beyond available options. I a strong desire to initiate and lead a process of development of the local women. I could see several miseries which I believe could be eliminated with little support and guideline. In 2006 I joined IDSP as learner in its Mainstreaming Gender in Development course, in which there were 12 other female learners. During the course I was able to understand the various aspects of human development, while nurturing my emotional self, conceptual growth and analytical skills I was able to seek out the complex issues of women manipulation and powerlessness. After completing the
Page 26

course I have been working with IDSP to accomplish my own dreams of creating a learning and nurturing space. In 2008 it became reality in the form of incepting “Da Khwindoo Sabawoon” means in Pashto the “The Future of sister”. While Pursuing my ideals in this space I have been working with young girls in various areas which caters in conducting of course on Mainstreaming Gender in Development, awareness on emotional health, reproductive health, general health and nutrition of women. The process of constant action and reflection has given me a firm belief that one can create its own realties while trusting the genuineness of one`s dreams.

Reshaping ones destiny

“Farzana became a learner of IDSP by joining the mainstreaming and gender development course back in 2008. She faced numerous problems due to the tribal rituals as she was victimized by her family members due to reasons she defines as follows”
Situation of women in Pakistan and other third world countries are mainly characterized by three significant parameters that is the woman are poor, illiterate and diseased. The tragedy of my life also relates to lives of women in the tribal society. Oppression in the social structure is inherent and I have felt that oppression and exploitation caters various folds. My childhood was very normal, my parents gave a lot of encouragement, but the series of miseries started, when I step hed out of the childhood. By that time I had completed matriculation. I suddenly came to know that my parents have accepted the proposal of aged persons for me. I had to face my destiny as there is no other option in the tribal society. I was unable to raise my voice, but fortunately the engagement was broken due to unknown reasons. Though it was great news for me but the same attitude was repeated and my engagement was scheduled with another person. It was also broken, and then I started facing problems regarding criticism and I was blamed for my broken engagement. In 2008 I came to know about IDSP intervention for developing cadres of young women as leaders and practitioners. This course gave me strength to identify the root cause of my issues. I was able to communicate to my family that the myths regarding women are mainly constructed by society and it has nothing to do with natural laws. My family members also participated in some of the activities conducted by IDSP in which I presented my papers and reflections. Engagement with faculty and mentors helped me to transform things around my life. I expressed my point of view to my family members. I started to take action against what happened to my life and the life of other fellow woman. Though change is a slow process but my argumentation and communication with family and especially with my parents played vital role to deconstruct the myths and stereotypes regarding women and life in general Now I am seeking for opening the same spaces which liberated me and gave me the wisdom and courage to assert what is essential human and religious right.

Taking the opportunity out of the challenge
Personal Info:
Name: Age: Gender: District: Qualification: Tribe: Nadia Qazi D/o Mohammad Qazi 20 YRS. Female. Mustang FA. Baloch

“Nadia became a learner of IDSP back in 2008 by joining the mainstreaming gender course organized in district mustang. Being affected by a polio virus she became unable to walk properly but her interest in community development attracted towards this course. What she dreams and wants to do for her community is stated by her self as follows”

When I opened my eyes in an extended tribal family I was loved by my family members. As I was growing up, I felt that I am missing something quite important. With time I gradually came to know that, I couldn't walk properly. Then I came to know that my walking capacity has been stolen by a disease called polio. My sense of depravity started growing with me, and by the time when my fellow children started going to school I felt lonely. One day a teacher encouraged me to start thinking that I could participate in the learning process in school as other children do. It was the most sacred revelation in my life, but my family members were reluctant to take such a decision as they love me and there was a fear that I could be going through a humiliation. Luckily my affectionate teacher was able to convince my parents. Hence, it was the first stage when I accepted the challenge to live like all other children. My schooling was a blessing period, I always stood first or second in my class, but the time soon passed as childhood does. After completing primary education there was no room for further education so my class fellows like me also left school. I was most of the time inspired by the working women. I idealized their confidence and luckily I came to know about IDSP and its practice based course called, “Gender Mainstreaming in Development”. Though there were limited spaces for the learners but I was given a prime opportunity while being selected as intern in the session for 2007-8. During the learning process I came to know the very secrets of my emotional health, my reactions, thinking patterns and my over all behavior towards life. This course also helped me to contextualize the very complex realities of life in the particular political, social and economic realities. It helped me to relate theory and practice and now I am in the position to initiate some very concrete actions so that to materialize my ideals. I intended to initiate a process for the establishment of work space for the poor and deprived women of my community. This space will also provide awareness of emotional development, reproductive health and livelihood opportunities.

Learning Societies Network
There is an emerging discussion around the world about the need to develop/connect different kinds of spaces and opportunities to nurture a fuller range of human potentials and human relationships.
