In the aftermath of the Jammu & Kashmir deluge in 2014, CEE Himalaya put together its relief and rehabilitation programme named Rebuilding Trust (RT). Weighing the disaster proneness of the state and underlying vulnerabilities, and to mitigate the impact of disasters on life and property through disaster risk reduction (DRR) awareness and preparedness, Give2Asia supported the project Mustaidi (meaning readiness or alertness). DRR programmes using community based disaster risk management (CBDRM) approach were conducted for the children in schools and the larger village communities. The programme lay emphasis on the fact that the residents of the Valley must be prepared to handle any disaster or emergency as well as bounce back to normalcy at the earliest.
