District Chitral hit by natural disasters such as earthquakes, flash floods, rock falls, landslides and avalanches in the subsequent year 2007, 2010, 2013, 2015 and 2016. The District was badly hit by flash flood in July 2015, in which 36 people lost their lives and physical infrastructure was badly damaged including four primary schools and one high school in Muzgole, Rashun, Saht and Warijun villages of District and Tehsil Chitral.
Keeping in view the importance of safeguarding the educational institutions against the imminent threats, under the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Small Grants and Ambassador’s Fund Program, a project titled “Disaster Preparedness in 34 Government Schools of District Chitral” is being implementing by NRSP through Network of Disaster Management Practitioners (NDMP). This project has been designed to develop preparedness and response capacities of the educational institutions of seven villages located in 03 Union Councils (Chitral I, Chitral II, and Danin) of District and Tehsil Chitral to mitigate the risk through capacity building, awareness, and effective response mechanism during natural disasters to save human lives and especially future generation. NDMP has already sensitized the target communities through the best practices of CBDRM under the UNDP SCORE project in 2014.
