  • Hamara Chota Gram Project

Hamara Chota Gram (HCG) is the “Dream Project” of Hamara Foundation. Initiated in 2011, it is a self-sustainable village model of the Pardeshi community residing at Foras Road of Mumbai Central. This innovative initiative is helping community members get access to health care facilities, education, skills, training programmes and income generation activities to empower them and help improve their standard of living.

The five focus areas of Hamara Chota Gram

HCG looks after five-six chawls in Mumbai Central area, comprising of three-four generations of the Pardeshi community. The people of this community hail from Uttar Pradesh and comprise of Hindus, Dharkar caste and OBC. The chief occupation of this community is producing cane goods. The community is chiefly male dominated, however, women of this community are more educated than their male counterparts. Most male members are addicts and drunkards and therefore have a short life span. As a result, women become widows very early. Children often drop-out when they reach higher secondary education levels.

HCG undertakes numerous
initiatives for the betterment of the community

Currently sixty four children are studying in English medium Schools and sixty one in regional language schools. Seventy women are engaged in IGP programme who earn on an average Rs.2500/- to Rs.4000/- per month. Classes for cookery, English language, dance, karate, mehendi, fabric painting, tailoring, etc aim at enhancing skills and capacity of both children and youth. Social Education programmes for the youth and adults help them to enhance their knowledge on social and legal issues.
