EAI launched its first project in 2008 working in the now merged KP and FATA regions of northern Pakistan. Our highly skilled local staff have expertly implemented projects focusing on tolerance, religious freedom, education, gender equality, CVE, and civic participation and transparent government. We produce content and training materials in Urdu and Pashto and when possible other dialects. We work on some of the most sensitive issues in the farthest-reaching areas of Pakistan successfully by integrating traditional civic engagement structures like Hujra gatherings and by including local influencers and leaders. We integrate traditional mediums such as street theater, sports competition, poetry, and music with radio, interactive technology, film, and television, enabling EAI to be inclusive of all members of society in our programming.
