Supporting Resident at Leprosy Colony


Goal: To provide access to clean drinking water.


 Background Details:

We have been continuously working to improve conditions of marginalised and excluded communities. In February 2012, we visited the Rajendra Kusht Aashram (leprosy colony) in Bakhatiyarpur block, Patna to understand the challenges faced by leprosy people. We conducted interviews each person living in the community to understand their problem. They were living in extremely vulnerable condition with no clean water and poor house condition. We aimed to raise Rs. 20,000 for installing a handpump and repairing broken houses.
