Triratna Prerana Mandal (TPM) works towards community development. TPM was established to address the need to improve the living conditions of their own community, and to empower youth and women residing in the slums.
TPM specializes in creating community centres and primarily works on issues of community hygiene, sanitation and waste collection. Prior to constructing toilets, TPM invests heavily in sensitizing the residents on appropriate usage and maintenance of community toilets to make them sustainable. It’s the first organisation to install solar lights & water heaters in community toilets. Rain water harvesting is done to avoid dependency on water supply from the municipality.
TPM has also set up the Mahatma Gandhi Centre, in collaboration with Observer Research Foundation and the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai to provide training to local sanitation workers.
To ensure complete participation from the slum dwellers, TPM has adopted a holistic approach towards community development. In addition to constructing and maintaining of community toilets, TPM also offers informal education to children below five years of age and computer literacy courses for adolescents; promotes formation of women Self-Help Groups (SHGs) and encourages women to start their own business.
TPM is recognized for its neat work and innovative methods to resolve issues of sanitation and water management
