Our main office is situated in a beautiful old home on Lady Manning Drive overlooking the Kallady Bridge and lagoon. A small thatched hut on the premises is where we hold our more informal meetings. Cultural programs take place under the shaded canopy of trees on the grounds outside of our office.
In recent years we acquired 1.5 acres of land in Mylambaveli, just north of Batticaloa town, which is in the early stages of development – a women’s collective will utilise a portion of this land for their livelihood activities.
Suriya had the first woman auto driver in Batticaloa! Our three-wheeler is brightly designed to reflect the images of women from all ages and backgrounds with whom we work. It is widely used in our public education campaigns and advocacy programs to promote women’s rights – “Women Can Do Anything”!
