Construction of huts and handing over them to Irula families

The construction of huts for 40 Irula tribal families is completed. They were living in govt. lands (lake, temple lands, and others) in two Villages in Madurantakam Taluk, Chengalpattu District.

The Government allotted land for them in Alapakkam village, L Endathur block, Madurantakam Taluk, Chengalpatu District under survey No. 252 for the construction of houses. Each family was allotted free of cost 1 Ares of land each and house pattas (ownership documents) were allotted to each family. This place is approx. 100 km away from the Students' Home.

We have completed the construction of huts for the 40 families. A hut has a 12-foot X 12-foot area with bamboo structure and coconut leaves for the roof as well as on four sides (top portion) + a 2-foot height brick wall on all four sides (wall - bottom portion) and cement flooring and a door.

A Community Hall (40 feet length, 20 feet width) with metal roofing sheets, cement flooring, 4 feet walls on three sides with back side wall for full height, MS weld mesh above the side walls and in the front side with a door is also constructed for the use of the families. The tuition center for the children from these families is already started in the hall. A hand pump also was provided for their use.

On 17th December 2023, the huts were handed over to the Irula families. We have given dry ration, cooking utensils, mats, bedsheets, and solar lanterns to each family.

We attach some photos taken during the distribution:
