Disaster Prepardness and Rehabilitation

Provide infrastructure, educational, communication, and experiential support for developing village water supply, sanitation and hygiene systems.In the aftermath of the major Flood  that hit Khagaria ,Bihar  in August  2007, one of the major challenges beyond the immediate needs of relief, was that of rehabilitation of those who suffered traumatic loss of not just property and shelter, but of the very basis of their existence. This called for a comprehensive programme of restoring in a sustainable manner the livelihoods, so closely dependent on the management and wise use of natural resources, of thousands of people. Like many other organizations which got involved in post-disaster activities, TRY did not have any direct experience of disasters or rehabilitation. It banked on its experience of involving stakeholders in planning and decision-making in developmental activities, to initiate a sustained programme called Rebuilding Hope in two districts.
The approach of having a long-term intervention in these areas is to work with and capacity-build communities to become more disaster-resilient and cope better. These programmes, after fulfilling immediate needs of shelter, provisions, etc., ultimately look at strengthening livelihood opportunities and addressing environmental and development problems at a larger scale, which involves different stakeholders working together on long-term basis.

Some Major Programmes:

  • Rebuilding Hopes
  • Rebuilding Lives
  • Rebuilding Trust
