Build transitional shelters for people whose houses have been completely damaged by disasters and reconstruct affected buildings by integrating disaster risk reduction features.

CARE India’s Recovery initiative works to repair/ rebuild disaster-affected dwellings to create safe living conditions for affected people. The repair and reconstruction work for damaged buildings is undertaken by employing modern disaster-mitigation features to increase their resilience. Women are made an integral part of the rebuilding activities, to create new job opportunities for households who have lost their livelihood. CARE India also encourages women to jointly own the reconstructed property to reduce the gender gap in their community.
