Mission: To formulate a project for waste management of fishermen of Kameshwaram;

Observation: A self-sustaining program of waste management is possible with Rs. 15 being paid by each family; initial investment in infrastructure (non-recoverable) of about €40,0000 or Rs. 20 lakh is required.

Impact: FIN is still on it. Before trying for funds we want to ensure that ‘maintenance skills’ are developed and a team is created. But, nobody is coming forward. The huge challenge is to change the ‘social identities’ and ‘social image’ associated with this work.
