The Pakistan Army initiated a counter-insurgency operation in 2009 to eradicate the militants from the area. This was a successful operation, civilians were first shifted out to other, safer, areas. Approximately 3 Million people were accommodated in nearby areas, such as Swabi, Mardan, Peshawer and Islamabad-Rawalpindi.Many of these civilian families lived as Internally Displaced Persons (IDP's), but were allowed to begin returning home, July 2009 onwards. Unfortunately, as they returned, much of the industry had shut down,as it had suffered during the reign 

of the militants and then the counter-insurgency operations. Thus employment opportunities in these regions have decreased substantially, due to the militancy period it experienced between 2007 - 2009. Schools had been demolished and or had been used as training camps by the militants, who were recruiting school-going children, some of whom were abducted, and others joined voluntarily (either, because they agreed with the ideology of the militants - which was misconstrued - or feared for their lives of their family members, should they refuse. 

Although, at present, employment is available, it is scarce and usually deals with opportunities for labor-related work in construction, especially after the floods of 2010. SWAaT envisions supporting the individuals vulnerable to the overtures of militancy, with respect to Education and Vocational training, along with establishing means to create job opportunities in Swat and the KPK region and or other parts of Pakistan.
