Here it is necessary to mention that the process of training in this program is such that OPP-RTI request TTRC to take a batch of 4to5 students and train them in sketching Mapping and Documentation of the low-Income Settlements. For that matter OPP-RTI and TTRC work as a teacher to train these youth .In addation to that OPP-RTI will pay an amount of Rupees 30 per student per day to TTRC in recognition of skills imparted to these youth.

4.3.2 MASON’S TRAINING PROGRAME

The basic intension behind Mason’s Training Program as the over all enhancement of skill and techniques of mason’s working in low –Income Settlements. This Program of TTRC establish with the nation that TTRC should provide an extension to OPP’S Mason’s Training Program because due to practical reason this Program comes under the domain of TTRC in this program the basic concept & Methodology remains the same as developed by OPP. How ever TTRC has taken up this issue independently with continuous informal guidance from OPP’S director & practical informal support form OPP’s staff. There are four basic components of this program.

1) Contact Establishment with Mason’s
2) Search for Training Apace. (Within Community)
3) Individual & Group Discussion with Masons
4) Follow up


1) CONTACT ESTABLISHMENT:

The first component of this program is contact Establishment with Masons. This is done through three ways. At first different settlements are visited & Mason’s are contacted in each settlement. Secondly the area activist is asked to contact Mason’s in the settlement & hold a joint meeting with TTRC thirdly Mason’s of different areas contact each other & then contact TTRC to train them jointly.

2) TRAINING SPACE:
After Establishment of contact with Mason’s the training space is searches. For that matter the Schools in the settlement are contacted & held training in the School.

MOBILE GUIDANCE PROGRAM:

Another important program of TTRC as Mobile Guidance Program this program emerges as an come of observation problem of construction in existing houses in orangi. TTRC started this program in October 2002,due to People’s lack of awareness in the development of their house. Basically in this development of houses in katchi abadies of Orangi people approach non professionals like thalla’s owners & local mason for designing and Planning usually people use to take advice from them How ever after a huge Investment People face problems like wall cracks in bed room & kitchen Secondly Ventilation Programs Compound this situation due to un awareness of people about Construction techniques and arrangement of Rooms, Toilets and Kitchen.

The Concept in Mobile Guidance Program as to Provide Awareness regarding Construction techniques and important of Ventilation to People especially the target as to aware and masons during construction on site. Because people should be aware about these things usually people invest around one hundred and fifty thousand rupees for construction house 120 Sq yards plot with load bearing structure. The Provision of Mobile Guidance to people as carried out through a proper contact with masons & owner. The method of guidance to house owners and masons is based on discussions and distribution of leaflets in which details are mentioned about foundation roofing and ventilation .

Up till now TTRC provided guidance to 13 units from which 3 units were stopped till foundation level due to house owners shortage of Money 17 units adopted 75% guidance of TTRC while 3 units adopted 50% of TTRC guidance. This Information emerged from the follow up meeting with people.
