Community Habitat

Goal

The poor and needy in rural and selected urban areas will improve their quality of life through access to permanent shelter and to common collective infrastructure (E.g., School Building-cum-Community Centres) that cater to their socio-economic, educational and development needs.

Housing is one of the primary needs of people and many amongst the poor communities lack a decent place of their own. A house not only adds to their sense of identity, but also provides safety and security to the families. RDT builds permanent houses for the marginalized sections of society viz., Daliths, tribes, people from backward communities and those with disabilities, provided the beneficiaries fulfil certain criteria and involve actively in the whole process of construction. Families also contribute towards their share in the form of cash and labour.

  • A total of 61895 houses were built up to 31st March 2015 which includes 2661 houses built for persons with disability.
  • 1443 school building-cum-community centres were built by the organization up to 31st March 2015 to facilitate communities to make use of the building for various social needs including running supplementary schools, conducting workshops or meetings.
  • As part of improving infrastructure base of government RDT had extended support to 94 institutions in the form of additional classrooms, laboratories, toilet blocks, library and others up to 31st March 2015.
