ACT Appeal India: Post-Tsunami rehabilitation - ASIN73 (Revision 2)
Balance Requested from ACT Alliance: US$0
Geneva, 01 October 2009
Please find herewith a second and final revised version of the ASIN73 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami-related rehabilitation appeal for in India, including a further 3-month extension of the implementation period to close 31 December 2009. The appeal target has been reduced from US $10,979,038 (Revision 1) to US $10,053,823 and is fully funded.
As for each previous change to the appeal, CASA have provided a sound rationale for this final programme revision and timeframe extension as follows:
1. After extensive efforts by CASA and its implementing partner the Church of North India (CNI), permission from the local government administration and allotment of land could not be obtained for the construction of four (4) RCC structured schools in Nicobar, as proposed under the previous version of appeal ASIN73. Other activities proposed for South India, including the construction of prefabricated classrooms in the Andaman Islands, have been implemented, however.
2. Due to this, CASA has decided to revise its programme to remove the proposed schools in Nicobar and allocate funding available to implement new activities:
a. Construct an additional 150 houses for Tsunami-affected and excluded communities in the state of Tamil Nadu. This will bring the total number of houses constructed by CASA to 1,483
b. Construct a small school building with toilet facilities in the state of Andra Pradesh
3. In order to implement these new activities, CASA has requested a further 3-months extension to its timeframe, to bring the programme to a close by 31 December 2009, which has been approved by the ACT Coordinating Office. Changes to the ACT reporting schedule for CASA are reflected on the following page and interim reports have also been provided by CASA in support of this request.
