Delhi, Paani aur Swacchta Mein Sajhedari

Project Description

Pani aur Swacchta Mein Sajhedari (PASS) is a program aimed at leveling up the poor – ensuring taps and toilets at home in slum communities so that people, especially women and children are healthy and poverty is sustainably reduced. The programme, supported by USAID, seeks to build partnerships to influence public policy especially for the SBM, AMRUT and other Ministry of Urban Development (MOUD) programmes. Under the project, CURE is working in 51 slum settlements of Delhi reaching nearly 50000 households. Communities are being mobilized to come together, organize, assess their problems and plan upgrading solutions. A process of infilling and service delivery improvements, in partnership with local service providers – EDMC, SDMC, NDMC and DUSIB, is filling service gaps and fixing community hotspots. In Nepali Basti, CURE in partnership with the community, is using an ecological approach to improving health outcomes – restoring the Aravalli slope, stabilizing its soil, and treating settlement wastewater to prevent flooding. In Shastri Market, a community rainwater harvesting system is proposed. A Behaviour Change Communication study has helped identify reasons for open defecation and nudges for toilet use. Technical support has been provided to EDMC to prepare SANMAN – a Sanitation Management System on a GIS platform to support investment decisions. A baseline study has been done for making a situational analysis and future impact assessment.
