White bearded people’s Jirga’ meeting of village elders

Jirga is the traditional meeting where olders gather together to address problems and find solutions for them.

Before ActionAid intervention in Murdian district the village elders used to organize meeting but there was not systematic, decisions was not noted down, they just verbally come to the decision that most of time created problem, most them used to forget the decision and there was no written evidence about meeting consequences. But now 80% local meetings on village based conflicts, family disputes, inheritance issues etc. they practice note the minute of meeting at local level. By ActionAid intervention this practice known as formal meetings within village and district level meetings and gathering.
