Smart Homes – An extra intelligent home of Education

“Charity for Dignity” – We have a dream and the dream is to educate 5000 kids in 5 years. Following the vision stated we looked at charity homes and some service provider who are focused on Education. Most of the homes provide decent education to kids, takes care of basic needs but lacks consistency and an environment for education.

When we say this, we mean that the kids are living in an environment which lacks basic sanity and cleanliness, do not have a decent place to sleep, do not have the required privacy to concentrate on studies, lacks fun and freedom, no tutor/mentor to guide when the kids face challenges, no method or program to unearth the extra talent and basically the kids lack conviction. Overall we felt that there is no dignity in charity.

We at Deepam Global want to provide Education which cares for kid’s dignity, intelligent, ensure pride, and develops courage, conviction and confidence to these kids besides regular education. So we have developed a project to deliver Intelligent Education to kids.

To develop an House of 100 Kids the requirement is as follows:

    Description

Qty

Metric

Rate(INR)

Value(INR)

     Land on Vandalur-Kelambakkam Road 4800 Sq.Ft 1000 4800000
     Building 9600 Sq.Ft 800 7680000
     Bunk House or Smart House for kids to sleep, Study table, Rack to keep the       books 100 Nos. 50000 5000000

    Total Investment Involved       19480000

The Operating expenses to feed and provide basic education for 100 Kids in current situation would be 3000 INR per month which means 300,000 INR per month & 3.6 Million INR per month. We need to build a corpus of 40 Million INR (9% ROI) to meet the operating expenses of the home.

We also need to look at special fund to provide Higher Education or specialization in higher studies. We are looking at One Million US$ corpus to execute a comprehensive education program for 100 Kids.

Respect Homes – An extra care for old age

“Charity with Respect” – We have a dream and the dream is to care for 5000 elders in 5 years who are ignored by the society and lack basic respect and care. Following the vision stated we looked at charity homes and some service provider who are focused on Old Age Care & respect. Most of the homes provide decent care & respect , but lacks consistency and an relaxed environment.

When we say this, we mean that the elders are living in an environment which lacks basic sanity and cleanliness, do not have a decent place to sleep , lacks fun and freedom, ignored of basic care and respect. Overall we felt that there is no “Charity with Respect”. We at Deepam Global want to provide Old Age Care which cares and shares emotion with elders, ensure pride, and provides respect required for the elders. So we have developed a project to deliver Care & Respect to Elders.

Smart Houses – An Innovation by Deepam Global

We at Deepam Global constantly work on Innovation and Change in whatever we do and one such concept is “Smart Houses”.

Back Ground: In major cities like Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Delhi, Mumbai & Kolkata, city is clearly divided into super rich and most poor. DG team which surveyed the city of Chennai clearly understands the social inequality prevailing over a long period of time without any concrete solution.

You can see massive buildings and structures in the name of “Urban Development” and development of Smart Cities but for no concrete steps to change the lives of the poor and the poorest settled in the cities for several decades. You can see huts and broken buildings, homeless occupying the pavements & walk ways just when you peep through the windows of High Rise Buildings of Super Rich!

Only solution that the Government & Urban Development Ministry can think through is moving the people in slums outside the city and building them homes outside the city limits where there is no real economy and livelihood currently. Also if we notice there is acute shortage of man resources for specific skill set like Mechanics, welders, painters, masons, construction labour force, carpenters, electricians etc.

I would like to take one such cases of eviction drive Quoted by Mr. Suresh:

“The area we went yesterday is called Mylai Balaji Nagar. I looked up online and one article from Hindu caught my attention. About 3000 families who lived Buckingham Canal in Mylapore were moved to this Mylai Balaji Nagar on a eviction drive in 1996 to make way for MRTS. The residents of Mylai Balaji Nagar don’t have adequate water supply and bad sanitation and what is worse; such conditions have been prevailing nearly 18 years!

What I saw yesterday in Mylai Balaji Nagar is the classic social inequality. The norms of allocation of basic needs are affected for 18 years and even more affected now after the Chennai rains. I am just tiny blip to see this in person and I couldn’t understand how these families were living without basis needs for 18 years.

My humble request to SRM94 batch please provides your support to Sriram and his team. Sriram is very passionate and fully committed in providing a long term steady requirements support to Mylai Balaji Nagar
FYI – Distance between Mylapore and Mylai Balaji Nagar is about 17kms and average square foot price in Mylapore is 23,000 rupees and Mylai Balaji Nagar is only 5000.”

Yet another trigger which we want to bring to the attention of everyone is:

DG team surveyed by Umesh & Suresh at Pudupakkam, huts are build again at a cost of 75 K in a technically not approved plots by government. In some point in time these houses are going to be removed. But people in this area do not have any option other than continue building houses for lively hood.

Similar such things happening in “Sitthalapakkam” an area closer to Medavakkam in mid of a lake knowing that these houses are going to be evicted by Government in near future. There are many such areas people living in unauthorized areas.

Here is the solution DG team has thought through:

  • Building “Smart Houses” in an Container, insulated for heat/cold, protected for water leak, raised platforms to protect from seasonal rains and the best part of the solution is this can be moved without destroying (which is not the case of concrete houses, you need to destroy) whenever the government wants to move them to the right places and behind right economy. These containers have several utility including offices, mobile workshop etc., so there is a value behind the proposal for very long period of time.
  • In our study close to 100,000 family inside the enhanced city without homes and hence a requirement of 100,000 container homes immediately for Chennai alone. These containers can be rotated whenever government wants to build make shift homes. Also the containers can be stacked one over the other and we can look at 5 Stack to start with like in Container Freight Station. In one acre Plot we can easily build 200 Containers.
  • We estimate close to 1 Million Container houses can be built and used as make shift homes are part of the Urban Development. These “Smart Homes” have sufficient ventilation, power circuits, Fan, Light and also provision to fit AC Units. We can also think of solar energy and energy sufficient containers in next step.

Now let us see how the solution works:

  • Refer AID India initiative, “EUREKA HOMES” a team of few built or reconstructed a house , stated destroyed hut into a strong house in 16 days! Second in the pipeline.
  • Through our project we can pre-build these containers and install 50 Containers in a week time. Say builds a society in a month.
  • We are excited to state that this solution will revolutionize the City landscape and modernize the City without affecting the economy or the human life’s in the City.
  • We at DEEPAM GLOBAL invite sponsors or “Own & Lease a Container “for the people who are the pillars of our economy. Without them we do not have any life per say.
  • Contribute to cause without any hesitation and you can see your container with your name embossed given to someone really required. Cost of One complete 20 feet x 8 ft x 8 ft is INR 200,000

Kaakkum Karangal

Kaakkum Karangal is a non-governmental, non-religious, non-profit; institution established in February 1992 with the aim of providing home for the homeless. This institution today shelters destitute men and women, differently abled children and old people who have been orphaned and forsaken with sky high ambitions to enlarge its scope and scale of services to larger number of people. Kaakkum Karangal is a heaven for the old aged forsaken destitute and orphaned children. Presently, there are six homes housing 250 old aged citizens and 150 school going children and 10 spastic and infants, all are orphaned children. In our homes, we have inmates who are just one year old to those who are aged 90.

Kaakkum Karangal a social service oriented entity, founded in Feb. 1992, has as its main aim to give solace to forsaken destitutes who long for food, shelter and clothes. We admit such abandoned senior citizens of either sex above 60 years give them shelter, food and clothes at free of cost and medical aid and perform the last rites to the departed. Above all we give them love and respect which has been denied to them. We help them to feel their right place in society and live their last days with honour. In our endeavor, we look forward to the benevolent, broad minded people of society to involve themselves and help us to carry out our mission by donating not only money but also clothes, provisions, vessels and medicine. We also request you to provide other infrastructure needed for our sis units, functioning efficiently for the past 22 years.

With no one to care for the number of orphan children is on the increase. Deprived of the legitimate rights of life, these children, unless cared for at the right time, are likely to be parasites on the society. We admit such children and train them to become good members of society. We provide housing, food, clothes, education, medical aid and impart moral values of life. We strive to make them forget they are ‘Orphans’.

Aarul Illam

    1. Our main purpose is to help the deprived children in India, especially those living in the south represented by the state of “Tamil Nadu”.
    1. TAMBI will focus on all children from 0 to 18 years, irrespective of gender, caste, religion, or social class, and will privilege however the most disadvantaged among them.
    1. The association will develop its activities on an individual or collective basis or in direct support to existing structures.

TAMBI will focus its actions on the following activities as deemed appropriate:

  • Monitoring of child health (vaccinations, reminders, care, hospitalization, visits …)
  • Children’s hygiene
