People for People – War widows Empowerment Project
It is a war widow empowerment program, phase 1 was successfully completed in the Vavuniya district
The objective of this project is to provide a means of earning independent livelihoods to those widows left destitute by the 30 years conflict. Its long term goal is to provide a conducive environment for their children to survive, be educated and develop without adversity or hardship.
In short, it is to enable the next generation to break the shackles of poverty, hunger and strife and move forward into a better and brighter future.
In the Phase 1 we were able to fund 16 war widows to establish permanent ways to earn and run their families on their own.
We request potential donors to contribute in Phase 2 of the program which will take place soon!
