Présentation

Umerkot is economically poor & marginalized district of Sindh.. District Umerkot is mostly rural with 90% of population living in rural areas. The socio-economic conditions of the areas are very poor due to acute shortage of agricultural water since a decade. There are problems ranging from water scarcity to lack of health, nutrition, education facilities, other basic amenities and risk to natural assets. Normally houses are made of mud & thatched roof and there is no proper ventilation system in houses and kitchen as well. Kitchen and houses remains full with smoke during cooking and heating times, which ultimately suffer the women and children as they remain more besides the stove and in smoky environment. Also in rural areas of the district women are responsible for mud plaster to clean smoky walls of the kitchen resulting from indoor cooking smoke.
