Thank you for your kind support for our project titled “ Prepare 10000 people to face disaster in Chennai” implemented with the assistance of Global Giving.

As per the government’s plan these vulnerable people are evicted  and relocated in places far away from their traditional habitations which were are situated adjacent to their sources of their livelihood. The men of the families who were living in the low lying flood prone localities were taking up fishing and other jobs such as construction labor etc taking place within the confines of the city.

And a vast majority of the women were working as domestic helps in the apartments of the city of Chennai. But now the members of these communities most of whom, the indigenous and the original inhabitants of the sprawling metropolitan city of Chennai are moved out of their habitations for the purpose of facilitating industrial and other allied development activities.

Thousands of families have been relocated in the far away suburbs like “Kannagi Nagar” that are well over 25 kilometers away from their original habitations.  Apart from many hardships that have been caused by the resettlement at faraway places, the members of these families including the children have been forced to face multifarious problems.

The new living conditions have led to quite a number of socio- economic impediments. These problems have to be addressed before they assume catastrophic proportions. And hence SPPD has been taking up a need assessment survey in the new settlements. We shall inform you about the findings of the survey once it is completed. On concluding the communication, we again wish to thank Global Giving and all the individual donors for the assistance extended for the project.

On the outset, we wish to thank all the donors who have contributed to the project “ Successive Journey on Disaster Preparedness. But for them, not this many number of the of the target community of slum dwellers would have been trained on disaster preparedness in the city of Chennai. While informing the conclusion of the current project, we also wish to bring to the kind information of our donors the following.

Even while our project is being implemented, a vast majority of the these poor slum dwellers are being shifted from their traditional places of habitations that were in the city centre by the government to faraway places. They are now moved from the horizontal pattern of habitation to that of vertical one in cramped flats.

And this new reality of shifting of dwelling place has led to newer problems. This has necessitated us to go in for need assessment of the community of slum dwellers in the new habitation. The need assessment has been going on about the new challenges being faced by the community, and we hope to complete the same in a period of 30 to 40 days.

On concluding this report we wish to again thank the donrs, while informing the closure of the current project.

Thank you all donors.

Continuation of the Disaster Preparedness project in the Chennai Slum areas:

Socialistic pattern of awareness and Training have been provided to the communities in different dimensions on the matter of Disaster preparedness to avoid loss of great lives. Now, vulnerable slum areas’ people are going to be shifted from the normal congested and typical slum places to such apartments which are to be located away from the city area.

We at SPPD provide perfect and eligible mentoring and personal One to One conselling sessions to the slum communities those who are to be replaced by the Tamilnadu Slum Clearance Board – TNSCB, to the apartment living. Slum dwellers who have been residing at the horizontal residing area by forming small huts in the narrow lane. They are accustomed with open door houses, unhygienic and unhealthy style of living nearby drainage and waste water channels, normal living to gather, socially, and of course very transparent style of living with safeguard position from other people intrude in to slum area. Thus, they reluctant to shift from slum to apartment. Now SPPD takes place to educate them how far safe from this kind of pollution environmental situation to such hygienic and healthy circumstances. Each and every family has been motivated and personally counseled to be prepared. Not only for environmentally safe but also for disaster preparedness towards avoiding loss of great lives. At last, slum people are mentally prepared by knowing such facts and figures while they live in the apartment living.

Behavior Change Communication and changed status of slum people:

Such Behavior Change communication is worked out in the mindsets of people and they themselves interacting as peer discussion and FGD – Focused Group Discussion among them to arrive sustainable solutions from dark to bright side of life – living at apartments.

Mainstreaming linkage – Intervention:

SPPD made its reaching out these people with Tamilnadu Slum Clearance Board and Chennai City Corporation. SPPD is very much appreciated by the Tamilnadu Government to reach this scenario among the slum dwellers.

Sustainable solutions:

Indeed, this kind of changed behavior, psychologically speaking, will boost their standard of living in the society like other urban communities and definitely, their children education standard, socioeconomic and cultural changed would occur in their life. This is what expected impact of current scenario.
