New Opportunities for Wounded, Widowed, and Orphans of War
By undertaking projects to restore, educate, sustain and augment the income-generating capacity of the war-ravaged families who had lost their primary breadwinner in the civil war of Sri Lanka.
We are focused on communal dairy and agriculture farming projects that will benefit and create employment for the war affected families. These fully interlocked projects will raise the income level of those families considerably. We have successfully completed a vegetable farming project to support 40 families in Trinco district and started dairy farm project in Mullaitheevu district . There are more who can be added to this project as beneficiaries.
