Handing over ceremony

We could complete our project at Mullaitivu and Kilinochchi District in north funded by Japan government on 21st March with 3 weeks extension.
At the end of the project, we hold handing-over ceremonies to officially hand over the provided items. This ceremony is one of the turning points of “self-supporting livelihood” as JEN’s concept.

This ceremony is prepared and managed by beneficiaries independently. So the ceremony has deferent colors depended on the project sites.
