Interview to a beneficiary in Kilinochchi

I am a native of Iththavil village. We have 7 children; Eldest daughter aged 19 years old forcibly had to join the Militant group and died during the war. The only permanent income is earning by my daughter who is employed in a garment factory (textiles). This my husband is doing day to day odd jobs from which income I am maintaining my family though it is not enough to fulfil all needs.

About the village, this is a village directly affected by the war and fully destroyed. Houses, common buildings, drainage system and even big trees were completely destroyed. We were displaced from 2004 until 2012. When we came back we saw the village is like a cemetery.

We always think our present living and try to manage with what we earn or have as we realize that this is the only way to make us alive and live peacefully. We do not depend on neighbors to meet our needs. We are confident about hard work, effort and earn is our vision which give us happiness. Our future hope is to educate our children and make them good citizens.

About a Cooperative society, I have no many ideas to share but I know by being working as a group we can save time, share new ideas, support to promote social infrastructure, economic development etc. can be done.
