very rural area and belongs to dry zone, 191km from Colombo. People mainly depend on agriculture and other seasonal crops. Many lakes can be seen here. Since this place holds a history of civilization running back to several centuries, the Iginimitiya lake, build several centuries ago, had been renovated in 1985 by loan from JICA. This area is based on many historic stories and was the part of the Kurunegala Kingdom. First a temple is built by king and then the population expanded gradually in this area based upon temple. Still ruins are remained as evidence of our ancient prosperity.

This project is actively working for SDG 2 (Zero Hunger) and SDG 4 (Quality Education), organized together with Green Volunteers for Green Future (GV4GF) since 2012 (first time in this place!).This village was rather secluded and weren’t visited by outsiders, nor the villagers travelled out of the village for many years. Electricity was supplied to this area 15 years ago, but villagers used solar power before that because lots of outsiders, locals and foreigners visited this village to establish domestic solar power plants. And this village was chosen by the companies to run trials, how supply-demand was met etc. Some people even came here to do researches and studies. After finishing their projects everyone left. People returned to their normal life. We got an opportunity to visit this village and share our experiences and memories with them. Then chairman of the village development society asked us to visit village with volunteers while paying special attention on harvesting work and activities with youths and village school.

Aangezien je in dit project met kinderen gaat werken, stellen wij het verplicht om een VOG (Verklaring Omtrent Gedrag) aan te vragen.
