Total Budget: Rs.7,79,973
Chinthana Multipurpose Training/Rehabilitation Center in Ajjampura, that PPI funded in 2018 is now operational. The land was donated to Chinthana Foundation by the local panchayat in recognition of outstanding work that they have been doing with the village school children on tree plantation and environmental education since 2008. As per the plan, painting, lighting and interior work on the center has been completed.
Solar water heater, solar energy lights and rainwater harvesting units have been installed and are all operational. The offices of Chinthana Foundation have found a new home at the center, and it is being used for trainings volunteers and meetings by various aid groups as well. Chinthana hopes to conduct training on issues like organic farming, tree planting and water conservation at the center. Due to the pandemic these meetings had to be minimized.
