Project Sri Lanka is an ‘all-inclusive' project. It brings together Durham University students and staff with community and regional partners in activities which aim to assist with both the reconstruction and regeneration of tsunami devastated communities in Southern Sri Lanka and also with the long term sustainable development of both coastal and inland villages. It is grounded in humanitarian objectives. It has students and young people at the heart of it. It is underpinned by academic research and teaching in a wide range of disciplines which have relevance to understanding natural disasters and dealing with the effects of human tragedy.
What is Involved
The project provides 4 essential ingredients necessary for community support, development and empowerment. These are:
- Provision of physical structures and equipment
