Orientation Workshops for Settlement Improvement Committees – Chattisgarh

PRIA (Society for Participatory Research in Asia), as a civil society organization, has been working in 40 slums of two cities of Chhattisgarh state (Raipur & Bilaspur, in alliance with partner organizations Chetana Child & Women Welfare Society- Raipur & Shikhar Yuva Manch- Bilspur since last 2 years, with the objective to collectivize and strengthen the capacity of slum dwellers. In light of the initiatives, we worked together to form settlement Improvement committees (SICs) in 40 slums in order to create a collective voice for slum level development and to ensure their participation in different development schemes which are made for urban poor.

In this regard, PRIA and partner organizations are organizing one day orientation programme for SICs members on 22nd August in Raipur and 27th August in Bilspur. The purpose of the orientation is to empower them with the knowledge of the schemes for the urban poor so that they may access the benefits to which they are entitled and also to ensure their participation at the various stages of RAY.
