Solidar Suisse, Pakistan first time acquired services of ACPL in 2015-16 for capacity building of parents of child laborers to enhance their income, quality of products and services. The first experience had been great due to very professional, committed and competent staff engaged by ACPL. Afterward ACPL won three more contracts of Solidar which include midterm impact assessment followed by staff capacity building on kitchen gardening, entrepreneurship and cooperatives and a final evaluation of a WASH project. The key strengths of ACPL which I have noticed are pool of competent human resource, promptness, quality reporting, flexibility in adjusting budget and empathy towards deprived communities. I highly recommend ACPL for capacity building initiatives.
