Challenge

There are over 1.2 million households that are women-headed in Sri Lanka and more than 50% are widows from the war that lasted three decades. These households are extremely vulnerable, to begin with, and COVID-19 has only made their livelihoods more difficult. Hunger and lack of a balanced diet are realities for these families. Over the months of March, April and May, World Vision Lanka provided dry rations to over 80,000 households. However, the need of the hour is a more sustainable project.

Solution

This project will directly address the problem of hunger, balanced diet and sustainability of feeding families. World Vision Lanka will provide the necessary technical training to 100 women to conduct home gardening and equip them with the tools (buckets, tap, watering can, etc.) and raw materials (seeds, seedlings, fertilizer, etc.) to get started. Further, the intention is to monitor and support them throughout the project with technical input until they are able to be self-sufficient.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help 100 women-headed households to overcome the crippling effects of COVID-19 including poverty, hunger, and nutrition for the foreseeable future. With the average family size of 4 individuals, this project will impact 400 lives. This means 400 lives that would have better health, education and economic outcomes because of a regular and balanced diet.
