Associated Cause

During the 2015 December Floods Chennai Trekking Club was actively engaged in rehabilitation of flood impacted backward hamlets near Pulicat. After initial relief efforts involving repairing damaged huts and restoring lost livelihood, CTC started a long term rehab program to improve education, sanitation, etc in many poor villages. In August 2016 CTC finished the construction of a school cum tuition center catering to more then hundred children from 15 nearby villages to provide quality education. We are employing three teachers for the students. In a second phase we are now planning to build toilets to improve sanitation as well as various other initiatives towards development of these backwards hamlets.
