To Renovation the damaged and semi houses

For every five people in this world, one  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.

Target people population: 4900 area covered 50 kms. The project area: Country : INDIA: State : Tamilnadu; District Tiruvannamalai; Taluk : Tiruvannamalai Target villages Covered : 05 .Total damaged house 50 .

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 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 labor their physical ability lacks behind because of non-availability of proper health and treatments.

 

This project aims to protect their livelihood and shelter.        So we believe that our project is very much consist with the objective and eligible activities of this programme.

 The temporary thatched roof will be dismantled with the help of community participation. For each house a working group will be selected from the Self Help groups and this group of people will help them in rebuilding the structure. The fellow colleagues will get half of the original wages and help the beneficiaries to complete the house at low cost.

 community PARTICIPATION

 Entire project work will be done by the beneficiaries and their colleagues in their Self Help Groups. Only skilled labors will be hired from out side. BOSS  will give technical support at free of cost to the community. Hence out of the total cost of the project 80% will be requested from Donor  and in the remaining 50% 15% will be bear by the beneficiary as cash and kind, manual labor and the remaining 5% will be bear by the our BOSS organization as for technical expertise.

 Community Participation :  BOSS  will organize a community based monitoring committee in which three people from the community, one civil engineer and BOSS  organization chief will be the members. This committee will monitor each and every activity, purchase of materials and finance management.  

 

There is a possibility of occurring problems at three stages that before, during and after Construction . BOSS  has  evolved  strategic  approached  to  resolve  these problem as mentioned     below. There is a   chance  of     occurring    problem     in     selection  of  beneficiaries. BOSS     has Resolved  this by  forming  community based committee  hichhas selected the 100 toppoorest  of  poor  based  on the  beneficiaries  financial  status and physical damage of the houses.

 

 Skilled  labors may not be available.  This   will be  easily  managed  by BOSS that  it has a good team of technical experts in  civil structure  construction and they would look after this. In addition  the  construction  work will  face halt due to rain and we have planned to start the construction only after monsoon.The  beneficiaries  have  accepted to  bear 15%    cost  as   cash  and they  would  get it  as loan  from the  savings  of their  Self Help   Group. They have to repay the loan with 12 interest per annum to the  groups.  Default in repayment may occur. This will be managed by the Self Help Group members and the  beneficiaries also have their own savings in SHG account. Any how this will take time to change their life style through various  Awareness programme and smooth Approaches.
