The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) commenced the Strengthening Rule of Law project (SRLP) in 2012 in post-crisis Malakand Division, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP). The project supports institutions tasked with ensuring the rule of law to help them provide quality justice that is accessible, affordable and fair, and by extension, to foster trust between communities and justice providers. A key component of this support was the European Union (EU)-funded 14-bed women’s dormitory and childcare facility at the Regional Training Centre (RTC) in Swat, which was inaugurated in November 2016. The RTC itself was established with support from the Government of the Netherlands, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Government of KP.
