The volatile security situation in the tribal agencies and their adjacent settled-districts has put survival of the local communities at risk. With the launch of War on Terror in Afghanistan, its spill-over effect immediately started and engulfed the FATA region in Pakistan at first. Time-to-time, Pakistan security agencies conducted military operations to quell the menace at its nascent stage. However, the phenomenon of militancy proved to be resilient and their centre of power frequently been shifted from one place to another. Due to this reason, Pakistan security forces had to conduct military operations in Bajuar, Swat, Khyber and now in the Waziristan Agency. Such unusual activities have always uncommon impacts over its local people that demanded extraordinary measures. With the help of international donor agencies, Initiative for Development and Empowerment Axis (IDEA) has launched several projects for the victims of militancy-hit areas including Bajuar Agency, Swat and North Waziristan Agency (NWA) from education to financial assistance and health. The following table shows IDEA’s running projects, with its brief introduction.
