This initiative of Sobha Community Home Project – “Griha Sobha 2024”, provides free housing benefit to 220 women-led underprivileged families in Palakkad district, aiming to address the pressing issue of inadequate housing experienced by underprivileged families in India.

Of these 120 homes where foundation stone laying was done, 13 landless families have been provided with 5 cents of land each, upon which their homes will be constructed.

The event, held on March 9th, was graced by esteemed dignitaries, including Mrs Sobha Menon, Trustee, Sri Kurumba Educational and Charitable Trust and Mr. Ravi Menon, Chairman of Sobha Limited.
