NEIGHBOURHOOD COMMUNITIES PMSSS promoted Neighborhood Community concept for children, youth, women, and men for community mobilization focusing on disaster management in the coastal districts of Pondicherry, Karaikkal and Cuddalore.
- The community structures are strengthened to take up and handle village problems such as laying roads, street lights, construction and repair of overhead water tanks, bridges, bus shelters, local transport facilities.
- The NCs took up social issues like commercial sex, school drop outs, marriage registration, etc. with the participation of the PRI leaders. Financial linkages were established with nearby micro and macro financial and banking institutions for the socio economic development of the target people.
- They were enabled to critically assess and prioritize their present needs and prepare short and long term action plans for their self reliant and sustainable development.
