Urban Development
When she was President, Pratibha Patil planned to invest large amounts of money into infrastructure building in underdeveloped areas. If the government, or any private organization can be urged to do that through campaigns.
Nuisances like power and water shortages can be controlled by us ourselves by taking steps to not waste these resources.
Rooftop farms growing food can be made to satisfy the need of cheap food and water.
The steps mentioned in the first section should be taken to improve the condition of sanitation.

Sanitation standard in Mumbai
The quality of sewage facilities in Mumbai varies from place to place:
The Standard Of Living In Mumbai
Mumbai is a very habitable and popular place for living. South Mumbai, is the best area. Although there are so many nice areas for residency, large parts of Mumbai are undeveloped, and the standard if living there is very poor(i.e. Dharavi, Dhobi Ghaat, etc.). There aren't proper sewage facilities, there is less water, lots of power cuts, etc.
BY Jivesh Mohan, Campion School
We live in Mumbai, one of the largest and most populated metropolises in the world, and the commercial capital of India. Mumbai is a beautiful city, filled with lots of breathtaking sights. It is the richest city in South Asia and the home to Bollywood.
Is That All??
But unfortunately, that is only one side of the coin. Mumbai is filled with slums, and it is far from perfect. Garbage on streets is a common sight almost everywhere.
This is an example of a toilet in a well-to-do houseold
And this is the state of public toilets
And I guess this is a common sight for us in the monsoon.
Running water
This is one of the biggest problems in Mumbai,
and it is caused by us.
Many people in Mumbai get their water at odd times of the day. WHY???
While we do this,
This happens in the underdeveloped areas of Mumbai
And also, the slum areas in Mumbai don't even
have proper sewage facilities.
Can WE imagine living without toilets?
Moving on to,
So, what do
do about it??
As a citizen of Mumbai, we have a civic responsibility
towards this city.
After all, if we don't do anything about it, WHO WILL?
Ways to improve sanitation conditions in slums
Ways to improve condition of running water
The solution to this can be done by us ourselves.
Techniques like rainwater harvesting, recycling of water must be promoted by campaigns.
People should be made aware of how the people without enough water suffer and how we can help them.
Only 10,237,586 people in Mumbai were literate according to the 2011 Mumbai census. So, about half of the population of Mumbai is illiterate. Illiteracy does not merely mean that they do not know how to read and write, but they are not aware of the basic issues like pollution, wastage, etc.
Ways To Increase Literacy
Education level of children
In the census taken in 2011, the literacy rate of males(children&adults) was 93.32% while that of females was 86.7%.
This is because underprivileged people are not aware of the importance of education. Even if they are, there might be no free schools near them.
Also, some people in the underdeveloped areas think that education is not needed for female children and so do not send them to school.
The main problem is that some families are so poor, that even though they have the option of free education for their children, they choose to keep them at home to earn money.
More night schools should made so as to comply to the needs of the poor families.
People should be made aware of the benefits of a good education.
Ways to Improve
We sincerely hope you were awake during the presentation and thanks for watching!!
In Bengal, an NGO called Ramakrishna Mission Lokashiksha Parishad helped build toilets for many houses in underdeveloped parts of Bengal.
If similar NGOs can be called for support and campaigns and calls for donations are made, then new infrastructure could be built
Calls for donations for this initiative should be made.
The residents of the slums should be made aware how to maintain hygiene and to clean their hands before eating, not to defecate in open areas, etc.
The aim is to have 1 toilet atleast for every 3 households.
If Porta-Pottys (portable toilets) can be provided, it would be very helpful to the slum residents

Edutainment should be introduced to motivate the student to study.
The intended progress
No gender bias should be there in terms of education.
