Slum Rehabilitation Society (SRS) was established to provide for a self-contained home with a proper kitchen and bathroom for slum-dweller families. The NGO has worked extensively with Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority and leading real estate developers with a key focus on slum rehabilitation in the city of Mumbai.
Their solutions include:
Facilitation of slum rehabilitation for various stakeholders.
Data management of slum pockets.
Community development and mobilization programmes.
Establishment of social cohesion post rehabilitation.
Given Mumbais sky-high land prices, it is an economic challenge to rehabilitate slum-dwellers in concrete high-rises. SRS finances the re-housing by ear marking part of the slum-occupied land for sale to builders at commercial rates. SRS projects include:
Slum Rehabilitation Projects: SRS facilitates construction of re-housing buildings. The NGO helps the community to mobilize, organize and relocate.
Welfare activities: Post rehousing, SRS supports the slum community through diverse activities like balwadis, self-help groups, women mandals and health camps.
Consultancy: SRS acts as a consultant and a support to NGOs targeted at upliftment of slum-dwellers lives.
The greatest challenge SRS currently faces is paucity of funds. The NGO is focused on fund raising to enable it to accept more projects.
