Kudumbashree women from Pallipad, Karthikapally and Cheruthana Panchayaths of Alappuzha district are busy creating history by constructing the house of Life Mission in Pallipad Panchayath. The construction is progressing in a fast pace. A beneficiary from Pallipad CDS earlier and a group of 32 women were given training with the help of Eksath training centre.
Kudumbashree Mission clubbed the construction for Life Mission and the construction training for the women together to reduce the cost of construction. The building blocks are availed from MGNREGA as free of cost. An amount of Rs 4 lakh is estimated cost of the house which would be released to the beneficiary in 4 stages. As the training and the construction of the house is clubbed, the labour cost for the same could be reduced. This is the first construction work took up by the Kudumbashree Women. 4 masons gave leadership for the construction training. Motivational training was also extended to them. Training was also given in brick making and ferroslabs making as well.
It is planned to build the Life Mission houses in each block in the same model. The construction of the house at Pallipad would be completed by next month. It is also planned to extend the same model to another panchayaths as well. Thamarakkulam Panchayath is the next identified Panchayath in which the construction model would be replicated.
