The Anti­Fraud Hotline Project funds a multi­lingual hotline that allows individuals to report allegations of fraud, waste, and abuse in USAID projects. The hotline enables communication in English, Urdu, Pashto, Sindhi, and Baloch via phone, conventional mail, a web­based interface, and email. Complaints received via the hotline are transferred to USAID's Office of the Inspector General for review and investigation. The Office of the Inspector General is solely responsible for investigating all complaints and taking appropriate measures to address them.
 
The USAID Sindh Basic Education Program supports the Government of Sindh's goal to increase and sustain student enrollment in primary, middle, and secondary schools in seven target districts of northern Sindh and five selected towns / areas of Karachi. The program aims to create school environments conducive to teaching and learning.

The project funded the repair and maintenance of units 1­4 at the Jamshoro Thermal Power Station located near the city of Hyderabad in Sindh. The project aimed to regain the power generation capacity that had been lost over the years due to the aging of the equipment and deferred maintenance at the station.

The program seeks to strengthen Pakistan's power generation and transmission systems and promote relevant policy reform. The project provides advice and technologies, as well as oversees USAID­funded construction and repairs of thermal power plants and dams. Through these and other efforts, the project is helping the Government of Pakistan to put more power on the national grid, decrease losses in revenues, and increase cost recovery by the power generation institutions.

This project funded the repair and rehabilitation of the Muzaffargarh Thermal Power Plant located 45 kilometers southwest of Multan City in southern Punjab. The power station has a 1,350 megawatts (MW) installed capacity, but before the USAID­ funded repairs, the plant was only producing 835 MW due to the aging equipment, deferred maintenance, and lack of proper fuel.
