A community worker's dream

Ms. Kilbarini is a 23-year-old lady living in Mullaittivu District, Udda Yakadu  village.

This district, being the last strongpoint for the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), suffered heavy exchange of fire between LTTE and the government army.

She fled the region only to return in the end of June, 2011. Here, JEN is carrying out Life-Rehabilitation Assistance for the people who have just come back to their old homes.

Ms. Kilbarini is working at JEN as a community worker (CW) in order to take care of her sick mother and 12-year-old brother. The CW plays an important role as intermediary between the local people and JEN, through tasks such as necessary fieldwork and explanation for the supporting program.

Her future dream is to take an examination for allowance to enter a university. In Sri Lanka, there are exams at the end of the 13th grade, and students are allocated to universities and their desired fields of study according to the results.

We sincerely wish for soonest rehabilitation of livelihood in the region and for Ms. Kilbarini’s dream to come true.

(This program is being implemented from July 2011 with cooperation from our supporters and Japan Platform.)
