All women team builds house in 53 days
Cherthala: In a display of women-power, the key handing over ceremony of a house built by an all women team will take place at Pattanakkad today.
Panchayat president TM Sherif will hand over the keys to Sobha, a resident of 11th ward in Kodalichira, at a function presided over by panchayat vice president Manju Baby.
The house was built by a group of 22 women in just 53 days under Life Housing Project. The women construction team were provided with Kudumbasree Exact Technical Training to construct the house that has electricity, drinking water and toilet facilities.
“The house built entirely by women is a historical feat by the panchayat,” said president TM Sherif while addressing a press conference. Vice president Manju Baby, secretary G Rajendran, standing committee chairpersons SP Sumesh MS Sumesh and VV Jayasree and CDS chairperson Ponnamma were among those present.
The panchayat is constructing a total 405 houses under the Life Project. It will also implement a labour-bank system to make use of the all women team’s expertise for other construction projects benefiting the public.
