This video is part of a scoping exercise by Empower's primary partner in Sri Lanka - Sewa Lanka. We are collaborating to enable a 5 year vision for self-reliance in Puthummumarichcholai, a war affected community of 614 residents.

This video briefly summarizes some of the key challenges faced by the community. Our approach as an organisation involves facilitating community-led solutions that are based on local assets and capability. In January 2013 we will be working with this community to chart their 5 year vision for self-reliance. Key outcomes from this process will include an inclusive leadership committee and a 1 year action plan to address self-derived development goals.

As an organisation, our main pillars of support include affordable access to capital, access to sustainable technology and capacity building.
