Discussions with municipal zonal managers to map out pavements

Talk to other NGSs ( Wordl Vision, Anbu Illam) to shortlist the pavements

Field staff visit pavements to assess the Density of households, Duration of stay etc.

Community Self-Selection :

Community meetings are held to gauge interest and surveys are administered to better understand poverty level

Communities are selected based on willingness and interest

Validation :

Repeated checks at different time’s to ensure that they are pavement dwellers

Feedback from other NGOs

Ultra Poor Surveys :

Each household completes a poverty assessment survey (administered by field staff)

Ultra Poor families are identified based on Grameen PPI indicators and EBN’s Ultra Poor Indicators
