This year's performance of the Institute for Development Studies and Practices, IDSP-Pakistan would not have been possible without the generous support of friends, colleagues, mentors and development partners of the Institute. The support enabled IDSP to maintain a steady course on its Identity, Standardization and Outreach in spite of the ongoing violence, security issues and vulnerabilities in Pakistan.

Saeed Shah Programme Director Academic Development Programme IDSP-Pakistan

The Institute initiated two processes to consolidate thirteen years of learning and the establishment of systems of learning at IDSP. At the same time, it was important to validate the Institute's learning courses and consolidate the attempts at attaining equivalence of IDSP courses with the regular courses offered by other academic institutes. A consultant was engaged, who studied all the IDSP documents, its courses, inception reports, evaluations, and retreat documents. She

Dear Friends, This year's Annual Report of the Institute for Development Studies and Practices is based on three inter-related themes;
Ÿ Identity Ÿ Standardization and Ÿ Outreach

produced the study which provides pathways for IDSP's future. While interesting facts have been thrown up through the study, one factor that remains constant is importance IDSP attaches to process (the heart of practice), which has been validated. Her report says “An overview of research methodologies shows that IDSP has recreated research as a distinctive and exceptional praxis tool that allows learners to absorb theory and test their understanding, without a focus on production of transmittable body of work that usually is definitive of research. So the emphasis is on the process of research itself, rather than what it produces. The process is closely monitored by mentors.” The study has proposed to the IDSP to take the path of intellectual entrepreneurship. The report is still under discussion and once the Board of Trustees approves it, the transition process will be initiated. A National Office has been established in Karachi. The office is catering to the institutional and growth needs of IDSP. The activities of the Trust are initiated here. Karachi is also paving the way to engage relevant quality support for IDSP's growth and development. The 10th Development Studies Course for the province of Sindh was conducted at the Karachi office. This course has paved the way for engaging Fellows to the learners from Sindh.

The report discusses the initiatives taken to consolidate thirteen years of practices by IDSP's young and energetic faculty and its Fellows. IDSP is focusing on its identity to establish its uniqueness as a space of learning for the young and vulnerable. Initiatives to take the IDSP's learning practices to the next level of creating learning systems and its impact to expansion are contained within the report.

Study on IDSP, and Equivalence of IDSP courses. A position paper has been developed, based on a detailed study and in consultation with leading academics in Pakistan. This paper will help us understand how we should examine the process of equivalence. There is a need to deeply examine this process and the practices of IDSP, and understand the process and outcome of its Fellows. For example, four IDSP Fellows are now undertaking challenging assignments. They are engaged in creating their organizations. The College for Youth Activism and Development CYAAD is a national organization that has been developed by Raziq Fahim, Amozgah (Learning Center) has finally been registered as an independent organization born out of the practices of working with adolescent girls and boys, led by Marzia Khan, Alfalah without Walls, is the continuation of a doctor and a priest Father Auto's work with the Christian youth in Balochistan, led by Ilyas Indaryas, and Barkat Shah is embarking on the journey of creating a research-based institute IDRAK for Change. Together, these institutions have reached out to over 10,000 young men and women all across Pakistan, thus expanding the cause of IDSP. The themes of their interactions have been peace, youth activism, minority rights, adolescent's education and social research to track the impact of girl's education for policy implications in Balochistan. The Internal Course for Professional Development is ongoing. The purpose of ICPD is to develop the capacity of IDSP's internal Fellows in individual development, programmatic practices and institutional building and to enable them to work on their ideas by reconnecting themselves with their roots.

70 Community Learning Centers have been developed. These community learning centers are preparing ground for basic entry points of potential adolescent Fellows, leading towards the higher Fellowship. 300 women graduates were surveyed for a study on women leadership potential; IDSP has been engaged in women leadership initiatives since 2003. Over 300 women have graduated from these courses. This year one of the course graduates, Sajida Khair Mohammed, took up the responsibility of re-connecting with the 300 graduates. She traveled on public transport alone, all across Balochistan and met with every graduate of all the seven courses. Interesting findings came to light; out of the 300, 217 women were employed, earning an average income of over Rs. 7000/- per month, while only 46 stayed at home after their marriage. Mother, Maa, is the initiative to prevent maternal mortality. 30 women are engaged in a course in midwifery at the Baqai Medical Center. The women are from rural Balochistan, where maternal and new born death rates are alarmingly high. These women are engaged to save the mothers and their newborns.

Establishing a Trust for Development Studies and Practices Pakistan (TDSP)

About IDSP
TDSP was registered in Quetta in 2007 under the TRUST act of Pakistan. IDSP was initially registered under the Social Welfare Act in 1999, when it was formally launched as a formal registered body. It was decided to first establish IDSP and its conceived programmes and then make a formal Board according to its needs, requirements and vision. As an evolving entity, with non-conventional approach to development, IDSP needed a mature, conscious and visionary team for nurturing based on experience. IDSP's founding team members resolved to create an Executive Committee. Since it was an internal, informal arrangement, five of its eleven members were employees of IDSP. No general body was called to elect the chair holders; it was a group of like minded people who agreed to give it a legal entity until IDSP shaped itself in a more defined manner. All the members played a key role in providing guidance to IDSP without controlling it. It is important to mention that three non-IDSP employee members resigned within the first year of IDSP's registration. One of the members never attended a single meeting. One long-term member joined politics after serving for seven years as IDSP's executive member. Three non-IDSP employees have been on the Board throughout. One of them is the founding director of IDSP, who has been a full time volunteer. Since 1998 she remains the Director of IDSP and also the founder of TDSP. In 2005, members expressed the need for a formal legal structure for IDSP and to explore an appropriate legal act that could ensure the security of IDSP's assets, and also provide mature leadership. A lawyer was hired for three months, several acts were studied and organizations visited. Finally in 2007 it was agreed that IDSP should have a Trust to protect IDSP's assets and to support, promote and sustain its programmes. This was needed to secure its identity and help the up-scaling of its impact on a sustainable basis. The remaining employed members became IDSP Fellows, and helped in establishing TDSP, and in the completion of the transition process. The IDSP Fellows established TDSP's national office with a team of management and finance personnel. Karachi office is now formally and fully functional with its financial and management systems. It coordinates and manages the overall activities and systems of its Fellows, their partnerships and programmes. This makes it easier to remain connected locally, nationally and internationally through the Karachi office.

IDSP Annual Report 2010


Historically, IDSP has been going through major structural changes after every three to four years. The strategic plan was developed up to 2010. It is felt that we require another set of structural changes to respond to the growing demands of the Fellows and the situation in the country. Since the Fellowship model has taken roots, it has been observed that Fellows are imbued with a sense of responsibility and independence, and are making some interesting progress. The existing internal and external analysis shows that their work is becoming more visible in terms of its outcomes and achievements. IDSP has nominated some senior colleagues and an external consultant to analyze the past experiences and give a way forward. The team is working to develop the first draft of the position paper. Two of IDSP Fellows, Sadiq Khan and Barkat Shah have launched an informative process of consultation at the national level for creating a position paper about future direction of IDSP. Many recognized intellectuals, academicians, practitioners and activists from all over the country have been consulted through this process. The consultation process is now in its completion phase. The team has developed the first draft of the paper for further refinement and betterment of IDSP academic courses. IDSP annual audit was conducted in the month of November 2010 by a recognized audit firm. The final audit report has been completed and submitted. IDSP has also sent the audit report to all of its funding partners. The audit report has been accepted by the World Bank for its Zaanth (A Balochi word which means knowing) project.

IDSP core programmes are focused on strengthening and expanding the worth of IDSP with clear impacts at all levels. Academic Development Programme (ADP)
IDSP has evolved as a learning space for the youth of Pakistan, especially Balochistan, who have been marginalized due to their not meeting certain standards and criteria (degrees, expertise); here they come together and strive to unpack the mysteries and mechanistic processes of development, learning and education. One of its major programmes which engages the youth in a theory and practice based course is the "Academic Development Programme" which strives to foster the intellectual and practical capabilities of the youth for the development of a self-reliant and peaceful society. Academic Development Programme offers courses for the young and motivated groups and individuals, who want to fulfill their dreams and strive to contribute to the processes of social change through their direct or indirect involvement. The Academic Development Programme has recently conducted its 10th Development Studies Course for the excluded youth of Pakistan.

Learners and Community Partnership Programme (LCPP)
Learners and Community Partnership Programme is one of the core programmes of IDSP. It aims to strengthen IDSP learners' conceptually and enables them to work with their communities. IDSP has a number of learners having diverse experiences in different thematic areas. Learners from across Pakistan were engaged in IDSP's courses where they learnt an understanding of the dominant development paradigm, education systems, politics of development and its institutions, rights, political education and more. They also acquired research skills, and learnt about communication and professional development. After completion of the theory, the segment on practice or research (a process of identification of community issues, working with community, collective action) starts, where all the learners conduct their researches and take collective action towards problem resolution. The course resulted in establishing ten partnerships in 2010.

Women Leadership Programme
The programmatic basis of women leadership took place in the institutional structure of IDSP in 2009. It stems from the analysis of IDSP's initiatives and practice of working on women's' issues over the last five years. The analysis provided the logical basis for developing the Women Leadership Programme with three components
¡ ¡ ¡

Women Development Human Resource Development and Human Right Forums

The components are aimed at addressing and overcoming the gender strategic and practical needs in the context of human rights and peace. Women Leadership Programme launched its regular courses of human resource development in four districts of Balochistan, (Quetta, Mastung, Khuzdar and Sibi). These courses develop human resource at the local level and enhance understanding on development, rights and political processes. 60 young women have graduated from these courses.

Resources Mobilization Programme
Resource Mobilization Programme has been carrying out organized interventions for collecting and generating resources through various sustainable initiatives for IDSP's core programmes. The main focus of the programme in the coming years is the construction of IDSP's Community Development University building. The approach of the programme is multi-folded. It caters to a generation of resources through innovative livelihood initiatives of cut flowers, growing of grapes and raising a nursery. Another initiative is for tangibly understanding, practicing and promoting alternate energy sources.

Charter Development of IDSP Community Development University
From Exclusion to Identity
On the basis of last twelve years' experiences compounded by internal and external evaluations, reviews, retreats and a series of reflections, IDSP has decided to carve its own niche. It intends to establish its identity by extending its outreach and academic processes. For this, it has been decided to establish a University of Community Development that will cater to learning and livelihood needs of the excluded majority of Pakistani youth. During the past 12 years of continuous consecutive practice, IDSP has evolved its unique pattern of human resource development, that engages the disillusioned and excluded youth to become agents of social change and sustainable development. The evaluation reports its ten year's courses culminating the diverse practices of human resource development both in the horizontal and vertical dimensions. In this connection, IDSP is going to devise an independent charter for the University that will be essentially guided by the principle of inclusion of diverse groups and motivated individuals. The charter for IDSP University will stem from its vision and core values. IDSP's vision of demystifying the power structure, for changing it by developing a critical mass will form the pivot around which the whole structure of the University and its charter will be constructed. The eligibility criterion, curricula, methodology, assessment process and a close link of theory and practice will all be guided by the principles and standards evolved by IDSP in its last twelve years' experience. As the idea of seeking any affiliation with the existing Universities runs the risk of transforming IDSP's efforts into any other formal educational institution, IDSP will maintain its approach and methodology both in theory and practice. IDSP will evolve courses for different audiences with relative standards and equivalence (with other formal educational institutes). The standards and approach will be guided by IDSP's vision, philosophy, experiences and the idea of inclusion of the excluded majority by establishing their own identity. Unlike the mainstream educational institutions, the charter for IDSP University will seek a close link between the education imparted and the livelihood opportunities for the graduates. Similarly, efforts will be made to link and relate the theory taught in the courses to the practices to make it more practical.

The process was
Ÿ Validation of IDSP 10 year's evaluation study report. Ÿ Sharing the findings of the evaluation report with larger groups of learners and other informants. Ÿ Developed a core group for devising a Position Paper on the basis of the report's findings. Ÿ Conducting more than 50 consultative meetings at all over the country for developing the position paper. Ÿ Developed draft of the position paper.


IDSP Annual Report 2010

IDSP programme office has reached out to seventy rural communities of the Balochistan province where the formal and mainstream system of education has failed to facilitate the people and excluded the majority of youth and adolescents. IDSP has opened fifty community based centers and five district learning centers for the adolescents to include them through literacy, skills and livelihood programmes. IDSP also expanded to other provinces particularly in Sindh, where four community-based centers have been developed in the rural areas. These centers are mainly led by the Fellows who have graduated from the 10th Development Studies Course of IDSP. They have developed the centers in their native communities. In upcoming period of one year IDSP will focus to integrate its overall process and will clearly declare its future direction for strengthening the main national programme office in Quetta. Through its learners and community partnerships, IDSP has extended its support to some of its outstanding Fellows and graduates. These graduates and Fellows were previously engaged in different self-initiated projects. This year was instrumental in facilitating learners and Fellows in their innovative action projects. These learners had gone through the IDSP regular course and initiated some very interesting processes in their communities. Learners and Community Development Programme has developed a new strategy for bringing the graduate learners on board and supporting them both technically and financially in their action projects. IDSP is overwhelmed by the response of the learners and their communities and by the magnitude of the impact generated by these small scale learners' initiated projects. It also re-enforced our trust and confidence in young people of the country where surprising breakthrough could be made . Following are some of the glimpses of projects initiated by IDSP learners.

Practice area:
U/C Chanchro District Umer kot, Sindh Ghulam Murtaza is basically from district Umerkot of Sindh, and belongs to a middle class family. He applied for the course in March 2010. After assessing his potential he was selected by the IDSP faculty for the 10th Development Studies Course. His idea was “To analyze and ensure quality education by making functional the primary schools in district of Tharparkar, Sindh” and he selected an area (U/C) which is located very far from the city. This U/C is very depressed due to difficulties in access to cities, non-availability of public transport, desert conditions and hot weather. Therefore this U/C in particular, and generally the entire district is totally isolated from the mainstream system of education, health, and livelihood, etc. Murtaza identified many schools which were supposedly educating the children who had been enrolled there according to district education department's record/data but when he practically visited these areas, he found that the schools were closed and had not been regularly open for the past three years. The local people of this area testified that these schools were opened just for one or two days in a month. The feudal lords use the building of schools for their personal use. Ghulam Murtaza deeply analyzed the causes of nonfunctional primary schools. After identifying the

the issue at different level and with different stakeholders. He is also engaged with local NGOs and other stakeholders for resolving the issue. After the course IDSP developed a partnership with Murtaza's community by awarding a Fellowship to him.

Major achievements:
Ÿ Developed a support group of more than 10 organization

and 5000 community members.

behind the creation of human being, understanding the universe and nature. IDSP Sindh is an initiative of such a concept which is going to appear in its practical shape.

Practice area:
Badin city District Badin, Sindh Ayaz Niamani is basically from district Badin in Sindh and belongs to a middle class family. He came through the process of extensive theory and practice during the 10th Development Studies Course. He selected an idea “creating peace through mysticism” to revitalize the natural ways of peace and development. After completing the course he presented his idea/concept to IDSP. It was formally accepted after his assessment and IDSP awarded a Fellowship to him based on his idea. Ayaz's idea was to create a space for the graduate learners of IDSP in Sind. IDSP desperately needed a campus in Sindh where the ex-learners, Fellows and future learners could have a platform or a central unit from where they could share their experiences, and work together for greater social change. This IDSP campus in Sindh would work on alternative system of education for including the excluded members of the society. This was to focus more on internal development of youth and build their capacity as social change activists. This campus in Sindh would facilitate the IDSP Sindh Fellows who are working in different areas like agriculture reforms, child protection, education and peace through mystic music. The last mentioned was chosen because Sufism or mysticism is not bound to any religion or creed. Neither is it a group of people who work for their own fame or status but it is the process of knowing oneself, understanding the objective

Exploring new techniques for countering the downfall (deterioration) of red chilies in District Umerkot, Sindh Province. Fellow name:
Qurban Bhatti

on open ground. Now his technique can effectively protect chilies and its seed from damage, fog, rain and dust, and helped produce chilies which can fetch a comparatively good price in the market. Bhatti sent two samples of chilies, one processed through the traditional method and the other through his technique, to a reputed and well known laboratory of the country for analysis. The laboratory declared that the sample processed through his technique was free from fungus, aflatoxin and bacteria and the traditionally processed sample had 80 per cent fungus, aflatoxin and bacteria. After introducing the modern methods of drying, dehydration, processing and packaging it would increase export price and further improve the quality of the produce. Qurban has engaged his community in the overall process of his practice and established a strong network/support group. Now he can produce chilies with zero per cent fungus, aflatoxin and bacteria through a low-cost and timesaving technique.

Practice area:
UC Manjah and UC Gapna, Tehsil Kunri District Umerkot, Sindh Qurban Bhatti is basically from district Umarkot and Tehsil Kunri which is a small town of Umerkot district, and produces 85 per cent of the country's total production of red chilies. Qurban was very disappointed by the mainstream system of education which supported/ facilitated one class (elite) of the society. He applied for the course with commitment, courage and enthusiasm to challenge the mainstream system of education while practicing his own idea of community development. Chilies get infected with aflatoxin, fungus and bacteria during all stages of production, especially from picking to marketing. When chilies are laid on open ground under the sun they gather dust, which invites fungus. The USA, European Union and Japan had imposed a ban on its import from Pakistan because of presence of aflatoxin, caused by moisture, according to Qurban's study. Red chilies are the largest economic resource of the region. These countries believed chilies' with aflatoxin posed a serious threat to human health and might cause cancer. During his practice he used two sheets of water-proof coarse cloth, which could absorb heat, and kept the chilies between them for 48 hours. The sheets saved them from moisture and dried sooner than the traditional method of spreading them

IDSP developed a partnership with Qurban and his community for further strengthening and developing them by supporting his idea.

Major achievements:
Ÿ Community provided a free of cost building for office

including required furniture, telephone, laptop, internet and other necessities.
Ÿ Dawn (an international newspaper) published Qurban's

case study.
Ÿ District research department provided space to Qurban

for further research and explorations.
Ÿ Qurban reactivated the district research department

which had been inactive for the past several years

Standardized courses of learning and activism and its replication and expansion
Evaluation and standardization of IDSP courses through f inalization of the Third Party Evaluation of IDSP courses
Since its inception, IDSP has always followed a trajectory stemming from constant actions based on deep reflection and evaluations. In this regard, reviews and evaluations of internal and external modalities have been carried out. In 2008 when IDSP completed its 10 years of institutional journey, it was decided to launch a thorough Third party evaluation (TPE) which could assess the effectiveness of process (Human Resource Development in Pakistan) in IDSP. The Third Party Evaluation is based on learners and IDSP faculty as the informants. IDSP faculty and Board members gave their inputs on the report during and after the report was produced. The reservations of the group were communicated to the consultant for improving the draft. As a result a validation process was launched for an objective conclusion of the overall process. In this connection, the TPE validation study was launched with the TPE respondents in four different clusters i.e Hyderabad, Quetta, Loralai and Khuzdar. The validation process aimed to share the findings with at least 33% of the respondents. In this connection a number of 33 learners were invited to participate in the findings-sharing validation workshops. As in TPE report, the ratio of male and female participation remained 62% and 38% respectively therefore, the number of male and female participants in the validation workshop was finalized on the same formula that is 20 male and 13 female respondents. Criterion for the selection of learners in the validation workshop was guided by the various determinants, i.e gender, geographical location, representing the different courses, age, etc. The list of the learners with first and second priority was developed with the support of LCPP and shared with all the faculty members in the loop. The first priority list was exercised; the learners who gave their consent were finalized while the other learners who regretted were substituted by the second priority list. It was expected to capture a 25% of the learner's respondents who participated in the TPE. The four workshops catered to a total of 38 learners which is 45% of the total population of respondents. Therefore it strongly reinforces the point of views validating the report. The validation workshops with the learners helped a great deal in providing IDSP with a clear stand point and road map for its future. The validation of the TPE synthesizes the findings of TPE and validation study. The process of Third Party Evaluation was carried by Prof. Karamat Hussain former VC Bahudin Zakaria University Multan.

Hanna Educational Programme (for 10 to 19 year old adolescents)
Hanna Educational Programme is basically a community partnership programme which was initiated with the partnership of Hanna community for educating their new generation. The area is very deprived due to unavailability of quality education. On the other hand, there is not any non-governmental system for educating the children. The community had shown its interest in educating the new generation. IDSP Pakistan is already working through construction and developing a Community Development University in the same area. IDSP initiated this programme to educate the excluded children of the community who are not being facilitated by the mainstream system of education. Hanna Educational Programme was started in August 2010. IDSP decided to give a kind of a programme to the community in Hanna according to their livelihood. This is to be linked with the age old practices that the people of the area have been experiencing. For initiating the programme IDSP had made a computer, English language, literacy and tuition center.

Midwifery as Leaders of Safe Mother Project “MAA” (for above than 30 year old professionals)
Concept paper of this project was written by Dr. Quratulain Bakhteari after the visit of Swat where the army operations against the Taliban occupation of Swat started in 2008 or 2009. She went over to Mardan and Peshawar and had meetings with the affected people and came up with some ideas on how IDSP could support them. It was a very painful situation that women were expecting babies in camps which had no facilities for these expectant mothers. According to a rough estimate, some 60,000 women were pregnant and would be delivering babies within three to eight months. Many needed immediate medical support. The women had no prior experience of hospitals and midwives or lady doctors; traditionally the babies were delivered at home like a natural process assisted by knowledgeable older women in the families or tradition birth attendant in the communities. The issues were discussed amongst the group of individuals (mentioned as above). After exploring several possibilities the team came up with this resolution that “Establish Maternity Centers” in the camps. Based on this experience IDSP developed a project for midwives' training for community-based midwives in Balochistan.

Ÿ Develop a new professional cadre of midwives in Balochistan Ÿ To develop physical bases for practicing their profession Ÿ To initiate a process of overcoming the maternal mortality ratio in Balochistan Ÿ Establish community support for midwives Ÿ Refreshers and further institutional and community support

Khuzdar, Mastung, Sibi and Quetta district-based IDSP campuses initiated the process of institution building and programme development in the campuses. We believe that these institutions will emerge as local institutions at grassroots level. ICPD has organized 3 review and reflection sessions for the fellows for progress sharing. ICPD provided opportunity to the Fellows to have tutorials with their respective mentors and get feedback from them to enhance their learning and developed their 2010 learning contracts. All those Fellows, whose duration of learning position has been completed, resigned from their new learning contract after qualifying for the new learning positions. After signing the new contracts all Fellows conducted their presentation within IDSP and presented their new plans and ideas. ICPD enhanced its mechanisms and refined its learning contracts for the Fellows. According to the new learning contract, it is necessary for all Fellows to write daily dairy, monthly, quarterly and annual report and submit to their mentor. All Fellows will be having separate blogs/facebook accounts for connecting with the globe. The integration committee reviewed the reports and shared the feedback with the Fellows and helped them to develop their next learning plan and incorporate the activities which need to be part of their plan in the coming quarter. ICPD has organized three trainings of professional development for the fellows of IDSP. Four IDSP Fellows completed their four months research training.
