Engineers Without Borders - Hyderabad

Rasoolpura Slum Development Project at Hyderabad

EWB-India Hyderabad Chapter in partnership with an NGO, Bhumi, has decided to undertake slum improvement work, starting with a pilot project at Rasoolpura, situated in the heart of the city. An open sewage canal passes right across the slum and overspills into the houses each time there is a heavy downpour. The canal also carries toxic pollutants from a nearby industrial area. Lack of proper sanitation and hygiene are additional causes of many diseases prevailing in the area. Due to the high level of poverty a large percentage of children are engaged in child labour.

Under the guidance of Bernhard Chapligin of Karlsruhe University, Germany, and Prof. Jafari of Muffakham Jah College of Engineering, a civil engineering team of student volunteers has initiated detailed engineering and health related studies in order to propose practical solutions.
