What makes us unique:
We are community-based since the Board and staff are all local residents from the Ampara (Kalmunai) region so they know the area well. Our programs are developed and delivered with local partners. We have the support of all the local schools, the Divisional Secretariat, the city of Kalmunai, other NGOs, and local community and religiousleaders.
The programs we have developed build on each other and provide an integrated approach to helping local people improve their lives. Mothers use the pre-school program so their children will have an advantage when they go to school. Some mothers have also joined the Micro-Credit program to start small businesses. Youth in our sports program also work hard to improve themselves in our enriched after-school program.
