Menwali hamlet


Published on

One of the communities i'm working with have no homes . that was supposed to be used to build proper homes to these people (the first ones in their lives). The homes he built are in terrible conditions and very unsafe to live in, and now the tribe can face the risks of living during the rainy season in the very fragile tents nearby a river near their hamlet where they have to live now, which will be completely flooded and full of water stagnation/contamination and water related diseases during the next months. We are trying to help them by fix the houses until the end of this month!

Menwali hamlet

  1. 1. menwali hamleta tribal community without home Wai city, Satara district, Maharashtra state, India
  2. 2. NEEDS HISTORY AND NEEDS This tribal community consists on more than 40 families that, due to not being able to live in their land, had to live nearby the river in Wai, without houses better than tents made of cloths and plastic waste, with no electricity, safe drinking water or toilets. The NGO Shramik found a land to them (in Menwali, 5km from Wai) and applied for a government scheme for building proper houses.
  3. 3. HISTORY AND NEEDS The scheme was implemented to build 20 houses but, due to a corrupted contractor and besides the efforts of Shramik and other well intended individuals trying to help these people get the houses they deserved, the hamlet today is still half constructed and without basic living conditions. In fact, not only due to the lack of drinking water and proper roofs to protect them from rain, the community is not living there because of the fear of a wall falling upon their family while sleeping. In the next slides we will show the problems that need to be solved in order to provide these people a safe place to live, we are planning to finish the construction and we kindly thank you for all the attention!
