Liv, I love your idea! Your idea is well thought out and I especially like the touch of including a model of your tiny houses. I also like how your target group is that of an in need community close to home. Have you considered the logistics, the exact costs of your project? You might want to consider who exactly would volunteer to watch over these houses when people are occupying them. Especially if this watch must occur at all times. Perhaps you can work with other programs that will benefit your idea and its effectiveness.
Sarah, your idea holds great potential. I think a difference can actually be made due to your connections. I like how you went to your Mom and she was able to use her resources to aid in your idea. Have you looked into the logistics, the potential costs and effectiveness of your idea? You might want to consider getting a better understanding of people who make up Ulhasnagar, rather than basing your knowledge off members of your family. Perhaps your family members in Ulhasnagar can first introduce and receive feedback from members of the city on your idea and you can use that information to better your project in return.
