Rehabilitaion of 18 villages

Humanitarian Response and Rehabilitation in 18 villages in Dhemaji, Assam


IGSSS with support from MISEREOR intervened in 18 villages of Dhemaji District that are perennially affected by flood since1983. Disaster Risk Management Committees along with eight task forces were formed to strengthen the vulnerable community to help them confront with disaster and manage the community in a proper way. The Program intervention created community assets, sensitized people on the issues of safe drinking water, demonstrated adaptable home based water filtration systems (like Bio Sand Filter) and advocated with the administration for disaster preparedness which created an avenue for building strong co-ordination with the community in the course of project implementation.
