Building Shelter For The Homeless

BUILDING SHELTER FOR THE HOMELESS

Housing is an arduous problem especially in developing country like India, with Assam as one of its remotest place away from development. Apart from being one of the three basic necessities of life, adequate housing helps to prevent diseases, injury and death, provides security, and increases household and national income. It has become a top priority of the government and the society at large to address this issue.

According to the 2011 Census, Assam has 22116 destitute people, of which 14847 are women and 7269 are men. According to the Census report, there were about 4.13 lakh beggars and homeless people in India.Owing to the past incidents of ethnic violence and frequent natural calamities like floods which had taken place in Assam, thousands of people were rendered homeless.
