Provision of Houses for Slum Dwellers- A case study of Ranchi
Unlike other cities, the Ranchi program was designed as a “beneficiary led” approach, putting slum residents in charge of the construction of their new houses. This positioned slum residents to take more direct ownership over the process and outcomes.
MHT was tapped to serve as the Project Monitoring Committee to manage the implementation of RAY in Ranchi. For MHT, building trust with slum community and cultivating women leaders within the slum as strategic changemakers were crucial priorities.
