Community Development

The two decades of war has left most of the communities in Northeastern Sri Lanka, especially the rural community in state of destruction without any development with only 15% road intact with more than 700,000 new road connections needing, 90% power grid connections damaged, 15,000 classrooms in 500 schools totally damaged, 326,700 homes damaged, 49,400 new homes needing and 18,500 homes are inaccessible due to the occupation of the armed forces of Sri Lanka. Also only 20% has access to safe drinking water, 25% has access to sanitation facilities and there is no access to recycling facilities. The TECH's community development aims to assist the people of Northeast to develop their communities and meet their needs such as water supply by building wells and reconstructing tanks, sanitation needs with building toilet blocks, building, repairing and electrifying community centers and homes. TECH is developing the most marginalized communities with the limited fund that is available with input from the communities. This project uses the locally available resources to strengthen the communities.
