He also said so far, the progress under this programme is incredible and we believe that in coming days it will bring even more power to the rural communities to be more self-reliant and stable regarding thier economy.

Georges attended meetings of community organisations in Union Council Marho Bola Khan, Tehsil Jati where he asked about the living standards of the community and its link towards the nutrition in children.

Answering a question during the discussion, Mr. Georges described that we are working withthe government of Sindh in the field of primary education and we will continue to improve the education level of rural communities, but it is very important for us to work with community organisations because we believe they are the ultimate power and potential to do this. Because these organisations under SUCCESS Programme are women focused and since women are the integral member of every household that is why we believe they perform better when they get opportunities.
