Distribution of cook food to vulnerable community.

We hope you are keeping safe and healthy during these challenging times....

We realize that you may be receiving an abundance of Corona virus –related communications right now. Yes, we too feel the same way. Enough of the negativity, let’s look at the bright side of things.

Things are not that bad. We are spending more time with families & loved ones, which we otherwise push aside. We are witnessing how humane we can be – sharing, caring and fulfilled with what we have. Knowing that everyone is there for each other just makes the lockdown look like a good thing.

However, here, The Tiruvannamalai is witnessing the quietest summer in recent times. Many are enjoying the amusing silence. The birds are flying more freely and the gaurs are grazing in peace.

But out there were people with needs, but no means.

Here at BOSS NGO, we kept wondering what role we could play during these times since most of our usual work has stalled. Towards the end of April, somehow things fell in place - The District Administration gave us the opportunity to play a role in providing relief to local vulnerable communities.

 planned out our distribution process accordingly. 


BOSS staff/ volunteers and  members took the lead to drive to town, back and forth – procuring masks, sanitizers, sanitary pads, etc, While members of BOSS delivered essentials to Unorganized sector  and daily wage Construction workers informal settlements.

Thanks for GLOBAL GIVING for its kindly help and best cooperation. Thanking you,

Renovate damage house

HELP RENOVATE 100 DAMAGED HOUSES.

 PROJECT REPORT

================================================

This project aim is  is helping Help Renovate 100 Damaged Houses for 100 Tribal’s in India living in Tribal areas .

The project area: Country: INDIA: State : Tamilnadu; District Tiruvannamalai;

Taluk: Tiruvannamalai Target villages Covered : 05 .Total damaged house 50.

 They have own registered land but no proper houses. Mostly living under difficult circumstances, at present their houses which are Hut or semi Roofs i.e. foundation and walls with bricks and cement and roof with coconut leaves. Because their building is totally collapsed, roof, flooring and walls were damaged. We would like to Alter this semi huts for their welfare.

 

The entire project area is covered with hilly and tribal places. They doesn’t have any infrastructure or any equipments not evening owning any land and living in mud-huts. They belongs to (ethnic) scheduled castes/ tribes or Dalits or Harijans community and out caste  in Hindu religion. They are all Indians. The project focus on both genders and to provide supports through women groups and youth groups. They are sexually weak and have no gender equality. The men are dominating women and women are compelled for dowry for getting marriage. The participants of the project are the women groups and youth groups in the age between 18 to 35 years.  As they are all hard work labour their physical ability lacks behind because of non-availability of proper health and treatments.


For every five people in this world, 1 is without a home. Housing changes everything for a family and children living in poverty. Inadequate Housing is one of the largest problems in the world today. It is pervasive and overwhelming. This approach to fighting poverty will have a direct effect on the efforts to reduce hunger, curb child marriage, empower women, reduce sickness, educate children and more.
Community-led improvements in housing, housing infrastructure and the local environment can have significant benefits for children and young people living in poverty. Increased security, healthier living conditions and access to improved facilities lay the foundation for children to learn, develop and eventually contribute to community development efforts as well as generating income .
The importance of the relationship between housing and poverty, and its Particular relevance to the situation of children, is not however always acknowledged in international development policy. Secure, good quality housing and its associated infrastructure (water, sanitation, drainage, electricity and waste disposal) is vital to people's wellbeing, but many poor people find that they do not have sufficient access to them. Similarly, relocation, forced eviction and the impact of natural disasters (all acute problems to poor families living in rudimentary facilities) particularly threaten children's welfare and Development. For example, poor quality, insecure housing imposes enormous health and safety costs on its inhabitants. Children's educational opportunities are also severely restricted by a family's need to concentrate time and money on maintaining shelter and related infrastructure, often requiring children to take on basic domestic responsibilities and / or income generating tasks from an early age. Addressing the housing and shelter needs that lie at the root of child poverty in rural areas is therefore vital to development. 

We must submit our profound thanks for  GLOBAL GIVING support and your best cooperation. Thanking you.
