Community Aid &
Sponsorship Program (CASP) is a national level voluntary organization
working in urban slums and rural areas of different states. CASP in
collaboration with Plan India has been involved in community development
in the urban slums of Delhi through its sponsorship program. The major
thrust areas are child protection, education, health, education, water
and sanitation and livelihood. CASP focuses on the development of the
children, family and community through the prioritized program domains.
CASP as an organization has the experience of working in the urban slums
for the last 20 years.
Presently, CASP-Plan has
been working in Badarpur and Madanpur Khadar. Being a child-focused
organization CASP-Plan has been involved in the integrated development of
the children. CASP-Plan’s interventions include a wide range of
activities towards addressing the issues which are classified under the
broad heading of the following.
Networking & linkages
In its Water, Sanitation
and Environment program, CASP-Plan has been working in schools and in the
communities. In schools, CASP-Plan’s has been focussing on awareness
through children’s clubs, these groups share responsibility towards
keeping the school clean, further CASP-Plan has also supported renovation
of toilets where needed, especially for girls. In the community,
interventions on raising awareness safe drinking water, water testing,
hygiene and sanitation have been regularly conducted. The communities
CASP-Plan works in are urban poor and often lack basic functional
amenities. In the case of Madanpur Khadar, a resettlement colony, open
defecation is a common practice. The children in schools through
discussions are made aware of the importance of using toilets, keeping
them clean and the harmful effects when this is not done. Similarly, the
importance of safe drinking water, how to ensure it is safe and handling
it well to ensure it isn’t infected during handling it are points of
discussions through our program in schools and in the community.
Purpose of making
As mentioned above, we are
already working on awareness of basic hygiene practices in schools and in
communities. In the last few years, it was felt that we need different
tools to be able to communicate these messages to children more
effectively. In our programs, we are often talking about usage of toilets
and practices which are not common practices for children at home, and
they are often introduced to it for the first time in these
interventions. For effective communication of these messages to ensure
that there is some level of attitude change and practice sets in with
such regular inputs and discussion, we believe the tool has to be able to
communicate the information in a clear, complete, simple and interesting
manner to children.
