Encouraging the underprivileged for their housing rights & development
  • According to data collected in 2017, it was revealed that houses of at least 260,000 (2.6 lakh) slum dwellers were demolished and were forced to evict from their houses. This harsh action taken by the Government left them homeless and vulnerable.
  • Committee for the Right of Housing (CRH) believes that housing is a basic human right. In a city like Mumbai where displacement is rampant it becomes very important to address the rights of the homeless. CRH practices a people-centric approach.
  • 1) They act as a link between network organizations and facilitate slum rehabilitation and resettlements on behalf of slum dwellers. 2) After a long struggle of getting approvals CRH has begun construction of toilets for people living in slums regularly cleaned and monitored. 3) They also focus on supporting basic literacy of children and differently abled people.
  • 4) Additionally, CRH held an intervention to make adolescent boys understand the importance of gender equity and encouraged them to support women/girls of their families at daily household responsibilities to share the work burden.
