This organisation seeks to organise, educate and mobilise women to obtain their rights to housing, land, education and child-care. In terms of housing provision, 122 families have been re-housed in Bangalore, 46 families in a slum re-housing project and 300 families in a self-build project. Each of the projects are different, but all are based on the principle of people’s participation and community involvement. They all provide practical solutions to immediate problems and have created ‘alternative models’ to eviction and demolition.
