Description: 

Like the AS/51/18 project, many of the bene ciaries of this project are temporary tea garden workers who are unemployed for almost 6 months and many of them in clo- sed or abandoned tea gardens without any means of livelihood. The project entrusted the families with the responsibility of planning and executing the construction works so that they feel proud to have planned and constructed their own dream house. The bene ciaries could choose the construction materials that they wanted to use for the construction of their houses, it also depended on the size of the house they wanted to construct. The most di cult part was to convince the illiterate people about the various rules and regulations as well as the timing that the NGO had to follow at the beginning and completing the project.
