We Support Children and Youth to Reach Their Full Potential
sSTEP conducted a study entitled “Profiling Urban Poverty in Guwahati City”. The profiling exercise, sought to map out the poverty pockets in the city and identify and understand the core issues that beset us. Even as the study was being conducted, it was realized that the problems were immense and are much beyond what was initially anticipated.<br>
sSTEP encountered the miseries of the poorest of the city, who were deprived of basic minimum needs- shelter, health, livelihood, etc. It was realized that these may be the outcomes of structural failures or peoples’ lack of awareness.
Then the next step was to build alliances, right empowerment of the urban poor communities to assert for their rights. Capacity building of the community members was one of the main objectives.
