Partners Visit in the Model Village

Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care. However, there are people who lack housing because they cannot afford or unable to maintain a regular, safe shelter.

To give shelter for the victims of natural calamity and ethnic violence, Rehab India Foundation inaugurated the Rehab Model Village at Hapasara in Bongaigoan District in the state of Assam. This Model Village being our dream project is built with the vision that everyone should be educationally sound, access to health and employment. After losing their homes, families and hopes Rehab supported them by providing basic amenities. They were given free medicines, education, Ifthar food kits, Qurbani foot kits etc. The villagers were given interest free loans with which they indulge themselves in occupations like agriculture, cattle rearing etc. The children of the village were given free education, through which drop out were eliminated to a great extent. More four villages were identified for this project and the same standard will be replicated there. All the necessary aspects such as education, health and economic development will be given importance.
