INSPAD observes the following process to achieve its goals and objects:
Mobilization, Awareness, Organization, Training, Campaign, Action and Evaluation.
INSPAD is a certified organization. It holds the certificates on Standard Management Procedures by the TVO; it also holds certificates from National Council of Social Welfare and Ministry of Women Development, Government of Pakistan, under the NGO Certification Programs. These certificates are acknowledged by all donor agencies and Government of Pakistan. The certification process reviews INSPAD’s management, monitoring and evaluation, governance and financial procedures and found them operational and transparent.
INSPAD focuses on three thematic areas:
Women Empowerment & Social, Cultural Rights.
Women’s Empowerment, Women’s and Children Rights, Legal Aid to Women and Violence against Women.
Community Welfare & Development.
Non Formal Basic Education (Primary Level), Adult Literacy and Health.
Democratic Governance and Regional Security.
Good Governance, Peace Education & Stability, Legislative Strengthening, Women, Youth Counseling.
Approach and Methodology:
INSPAD’s approach is derived directly from the political development and governance context in Pakistan. It encompasses participatory practices through activities and ensures proactive stakeholder involvement, particularly of the women. Participatory tools, techniques and lessons learnt from other successful activities are used to solicit stakeholders’ input and facilitate both lateral and vertical cooperation. Effective communication tools are used to motivate partners, inviting them to play their leadership role. Furthermore, INSPAD emphasizes gender as an area that in the context of decentralization, devolution and improved legislative governance requires special attention. Mainstreaming gender into democratic governance process requires bringing women, workers and minorities to a position where they can take part on equitable bases in determining values, development of direction and allocation of resources. INSPAD also ensures that women benefit equitably with men from access to resources.
