Community Members

Since the onset, the project has formed a participatory approach with the community members towards its urban design programmes. The urban services created in the basti had design inputs from the basti people, and numerous meetings were held during all stages of construction to incorporate their feedback. After the completion, the members from the Basti have been selected and trained to manage and maintain these services along with the government agencies.
During the rehabilitation of the 19 families who were staying atop the Baoli walls, the team held long discussions and meetings with the family members – addressing their fears and anticipations and linked them to the various government agencies and ngo’s to form for a peaceful transition.
