slum rehabilitation


Providing secure tenure to the urban poor

Security of tenure is the cornerstone of our social housing initiatives which have successfully rehabilitated over 8000 individuals through the implementation of three major projects in Pune and Sangli-Miraj. These projects demonstrate a workable alternative to the typical slum rehabilitation projects that are prioritized by the government which fail to take cognizance of ground realities; and are implemented in an intrusive and opaque manner. The housing social projects implemented by SA are:
(1) Based on accurate data which has been spatially organized;
(2) Generated from a city-wide approach that considers housing as an integral part of the city along with areas of employment, healthcare, education, and convenience; and
(3) Implemented in partnership with the communities. This is how a slum transforms in a society that provides a safe and secure living for generations.
