Protection – Kohat

In Kohat, there are no specific child friendly spaces and no known projects with activities oriented towards adolescents and youth.

The government run child protection unit, in coordination with UNHCR, is active in Kohat although there are reported to be gaps in coordination resulting in weak and ineffective referral mechanisms ultimately leading to the most vulnerable members of these communities being neglected.

Nevertheless, services are available for people with disabilities including education and Dost Welfare Organisation is particularly active.

However much needed equipment is not available including wheelchairs for those with disabilities and hearing aids for the elderly.
