Mahiyanganaya, commonly known as DAMBANA, home of indigenous / bushman in Sri Lanka. Local community mix with the indigenous people and new generation is rising up. Climate is dry but during the project period could experiencing light rain.
This workcamp has been organized with Green Volunteers for Green Future (GV4GF) since 2012 (since a few years ago here). GV4GF is a NGO to promote voluntary service, environmental protection and improve rural life. Mahiyanganaya is at dry and less developed area and mainly community is living with poverty. Education is a not an essential thing to their life. Their farming activities is from the end of Oct. to the end of Jan. After that they have to survive until next rain season with asking or begging from the local and forging tourists. Few of them sell handicrafts and bee honey. Dairy farmers are taking milk once a day and all of them have local cattle, yield is below the average. We believe volunteers give a silver line to their harsh life.
High motivation to work and respect to the local culture and way of the local organization!
