Community Physical Infrastructure

Community Infrastructure Projects are identified by communities, designed with their active involvement, implemented, monitored and sustained by them.

In most Remote Areas SRSP Infrastructure Projects are the life-line of Communities.

Large parts of the areas where SRSP works have little access to public services because of the long geographical distances, thin spread of population and difficulties of setting up systems to address needs by public service delivery providers in such areas.

Our Small/Medium Scale CPI Portfolio

Out of the mentioned schemes, over 40% have been initiated with women community organizations

Our Process

Once the projects are designed and cost estimates prepared based on market rates, terms of partnership are developed for working with the communities. The communities establish implementation, audit, accounting and monitoring bodies which provide oversight for the projects and also contribute towards the building costs. All payment on projects are made directly to the community organizations through cross cheques delivered in open public meeting where the entire costs and expenses on a project are laid before the community. Many of the projects have been evaluated rigorously to determine their cost benefits, social returns and economic benefits.

SRSP has experienced teams of Engineers who provide technical guidance and supervision for these projects and a good MIS system which maintains a record of them. For Details on SRSP CPI Activities please visit the Statistics section which contains the updated figures.
