Our Partnership with the Municipal Corporation of Delhi forUrban Sanitation (MCD) 

There are approximately 3000 resettlement and JJ colonies and slum clusters in Delhi, making an average of about 350 to 400 low income settlements in each of the districts i.e. Karol Bagh Zone, Najafgarh Zone, South Zone and West Zone.

INDCARE has been awarded the contract for operation and maintenance of 439 Community Toilet Complexes (CTC) by MCD in 4 districts of Delhi - West, South, Najafgarh and Karol Bagh for a period of 7 years till the end of 2015. Most of these CTC"s are located in the vicinity of slum / JJ / and resettlement colonies. (See list attached in Annex).

Each of these 439 CTC are considered by INDCARE as the focal point for disseminating developmental activities through IEC and community participation in the provision and maintenance of urban services. A number of these CTC"s are located in areas where we have already worked on a range of issues from gender and development, waste management, water supply and sanitation to provision of micro credit and micro enterprises with our SHG members. We propose within the next year to develop models for urban development with community participation in the Karol Bagh and south districts of Delhi. Particular emphasis will be given to working with existing networks and community groups already established by us.

We share the common vision of serving the community better through sustainable development and initiatives that benefit those at the grass root level. This can only be achieved through a network of partnerships where the government and civil society work from a common platform in an environment that understands and addresses the needs of the poor and marginalized sections of society.
