Haashar Association is a Non-Profit, Non-Governmental organization working since year 2000. It is an off-shoot of a GTZ funded Siran Forest Development Project which pioneered Joint Forest Management in Pakistan. Initially Haashar focused on strengthening and supporting nascent Joint Forest Management Committees and Natural Resource Management interventions. However, in the post-earthquake scenario and with development of new development paradigm, program areas were expanded to include Community based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM), Poverty Alleviation through Sustainable Livelihood Approaches (SLA), Food Security, Emergency, Relief and Rehabilitation/Reconstruction, Disaster Risk Management/Reduction, Quality Education with special focus on Girls, Protection and rights based Advocacy. Capacity building, Gender and Environment are our cross cutting themes in all program areas. Haashar ensures transparency and accountability at all levels through standardized CRM and HAP practices.
