The AAWAZ Voice and Accountability Programme was a successful six-year, £39.1m programme which ended in May 2018. It reached over 8m people to increase the voice, choice and control of poor and excluded people in Pakistan. It included a focus on women and minorities to promote tolerance and inclusion. Beneficiary feedback from people who participated in interventions suggested a shift in attitudes towards minorities. Programme reports with results and assessments are available on DFID’s development tracker website.
