Trainings on basic construction practices were offered to the community. The idea was to make the scheme sustainable by empowering the residents to supervise construction works taking place in their house. In 2013, the focus of the housing improvement program was training and awareness on good construction practices through demonstration models and training programs. Training sessions were held with interested householders, mostly women on housing and building repair. Over the year 10 training programs were held where common problems related to building repairs such as water proofing, wall cracks, brick work, mortar mix etc were explained through models and actual demonstrations. These trainings attended by community members, were targeted towards improving know how of the people and in building awareness on the common mistakes of masons and plumbers that affect the quality of construction in a building.
