Short Description:

Overall goal

After more than one year of Tsunami-related reconstruction, it is safe to say that most of the reconstruction funds have been concentrated in the southern part of Sri Lanka. The northern region around Mullaitivu, which is situated on the east coast between Trincomalee and Jaffna and controlled by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) remains completely destroyed, as many international organizations have not provided funds for this region due to security concerns and a lack of monitoring structures on the ground.

The Salesians of Don Bosco have been active in Sri Lanka since 1956 worked with all ethnic groups in all regions of the country, including areas traditionally controlled by the LTTE. Based on these longstanding structures, the proposed project aims to provide 20 permanent houses for affected families, who still live in temporary shelter in Mullaitivu. The selected project area in the north of Sri Lanka belongs to the LTTE-controlled sector, where, until now, only limited reconstruction activities have taken place.
