Life in the Village

Youth Facility

Being a young Village, it did not have the SOS Youth Facilities for boys and girls until recently. A house in the neighbouring land was purchased and renovated to accommodate youth boys, while a house was rented in the close vicinity for girls who are following vocational training and employment training. An Educator lives in each facility with girls and boys.

Family Strengthening Programme

Monaragala being one of the poorest districts in the island, the FSP activities are being expanded to cater for a considerable number of children and young adults in the surrounding communities. 449 children and adults are being assisted in eleven locations under this programme.
