Women: A Driving Force for Urban Resilience

This book tells the stories of 2000 women. These women learnt the meaning of being organized and the value of savings. They have set up small enterprises. They learnt how better planning and the implementation of small but meaningful infrastructures can make neighborhoods safer. Their initiatives ensured running water at the doorsteps and sanitary latrines near the houses. Many of them work as the ‘Registered primary respondent’ for the fire brigade to fight hazards like fire or building collapse. These confident women now are widely connected to the government and relevant institutions. Now, they are not afraid to take up any challenge.
