Mass Awareness Campaign

USAID – DRDF Dairy Project’s Mass Awareness component ensures effective dissemination of project’s key message among national as well as international stakeholders, in compliance with USAID’s branding and marking requirements, through strategic planning and implementation of a mass awareness campaign.

Dairy Project’s print and electronic media campaigns are not only promoting the usage of best dairy farming practices, but are also creating awareness about the subject amongst Pakistan’s general public which includes government institutions, universities and other stakeholders. During Phase I, the Dairy Project’s mass communication campaigns successfully raised awareness about best dairy farming practices among two million dairy households spread over approximately 20,000 villages across Pakistan.

During the first year of extension phase, (October 2014 – October 2016), the Communications Team successfully reached out to around 600,000 rural households (including public/private stakeholders) through a series of advocacy and community outreach efforts.
