Improving children’s education and women’s living conditions on tea plantations

2022, Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is facing the worst economic crisis in its post-independence history in any sector. The entire population is affected by this crisis, which has resulted in a food crisis due to shortages of essential commodities. Generally, it is women who are the most impacted because they must continue their search for income while suffering the consequences (including domestic violence) of the frustrations of hunger, fears and uncertainties of their entourage regarding the future.

Currently, Indah, WSF and HDO are jointly implementing the Women and Children's Development Project on tea estates to improve the economy and education of women and children with the support of the John Cockerill Foundation. We hope to continue and strengthen the relationship between all stakeholders. The development of the people is in their hands with the support of Indah, HDO and WSF. We sincerely thank the John Cockerill Foundation, the donors and Indah.

Due to the increasing level of malnutrition and poverty in the tea plantation areas, Indah in collaboration with 2 local partners Women Solidarity Front (WSF) and Human Development Organization (HDO) decided to implement a project that aims to strengthen women’s livelihoods, develop children’s education and raise awareness on domestic violence in 7 villages in the two districts of Kandy and Kegalle in Sri Lanka.
