This workcamp has been organized together with Green Volunteers for Green Future (GV4GF) since 2012 (First time in this place!). GV4GF is a NGO to promote voluntary service, environmental protection and improve rural life. Forests occupied 50% of the national land 20 years ago, but now only 30%. Most youth in this area are less educated than to urban ones. Most of the GOs and NGOs do not want to implement programs due to less facilities, damaged roads and unavailability of luxurious life. People are suffered by poverty, but there are actually rich natural resources to have better life, even though it is also degraded by the deforestation. They have no proper guidance to change the distinctive attitudes.
In the 1st week, we will establish a plant nursery at the temple premises with the youth by cleaning the land, making pots and composts, planting seeds and seedlings, watering, etc. In the 2nd week, we will visit around and do 1. Cultural exchange with villagers and youth, 2. Activities with children and 3. Work and assist to the self-help group members' activities.
Logement & Nourriture
Village house at nice location, close to the main road. There is electricity, so we can charge our mobile and cameras, but internet is weak and let's enjoy simple life without internet in the indigenous community. Host family will cook different kinds of local foods with fruits and we should wash our dishes and clothes by hand.
Emplacement & Temps libre
Deniyaya is 200 km from Colombo with a lot of tea plantations close to Singharaga Rain Forest, the world heritage. Many English sign boards are remained due to the colonization by the UK in the past.
