A sahyog lari is a lightweight mobile infrastructure that could address immediately the necessities of the transit camp.It can be customized to address a variety of issues like the creation of public space, working stations to help in the maintenance of the houses, vendor carts for small streets, toilets, and all the things that are not available in such settlements. These compact structures will provide temporary relief to the people until a permanent solution is made available to the people living in the transit camps.
