Midline Evaluation of Prerepana Project

Prerepana project is concerned with human and social capital development in seven slums of Mysore. The project has been implemented since the year 2016. One of the unique features of this scheme is its emphasis on community ownership. In this, committees are constituted consisting of slum residents for running the execution of the scheme in different thematic areas. The implementation of the scheme is supervised by SVYM, which also has dedicated community facilitators for each slum.
