PESHAWAR: The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is committed to carrying out developmental initiatives in various militancy affected areas of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) and Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata), said USAID deputy director Paul Mc Dermott, while briefing media-persons at the US consulate on Friday. He also informed that the USAID had so far rehabilitated more than 130 educational institutions in six districts of the province — Swat, Buner, Upper and Lower Dir, Malakand and Shangla. Another 24 schools would be rehabilitated by the end of this year, he added. The agency has also extended financial assistance for construction of dams and recovery of agriculture and livelihood sectors badly affected in flash floods in the province, Paul remarked.
