Help 400 Sri Lankan families recover from the tsunami by reconstructing their means of earning income, rebuilding infrastructure, and assisting community development.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The tsunami destroyed much of the village of Mullaitivu, including the fishing boats and other means of income generation, homes, schools, roads, and water facilities. SEED (Social Economical and Environmental Developers) provided emergency relief directly after the tsunami and now wishes to provide economic, infrastructure, and social development to 400 families in Mullaitivu. SEED uses the participatory approach, ensuring the rehabilitation projects align with the wishes of the community.
How will this project solve this problem?
This project will: assist fisherman in rebuilding their boats, engines, and nets; support new income-generating activities; build permanent homes, toilets, roads, schools, and drinking water facilities; and help develop social community groups.
Potential Long Term Impact
One thousand families in North Eastern area of Sri Lanka have permanent housing and proper sanitation for safe and healthy living. There are sufficient income generation activities and education services to empower individual self-sustainable living.
