Exposure Programme

In Sri Lanka the main reason for the violation of human rights is multi cultural differences. To build up co-existence between inter religious and inter racial groups in the present society we organized three days exposure programme, to Trincomalee on 25th , 26th and 27th March 2009. We organized this programme together with EHED – Caritas Trincomalee.

The members of our Human Rights supporting committee participated for this programme. Our group got the opportunity to visit ancient religious places in Trincomalee district such as Koneshvaram Hindu Kovil, Nilaweli Raja Maha Viharaya, Sambathiew Amman Kovil and Weligama Raja Maha Viharaya.

Tamil and Muslim cultural events were organized and presented by the people of Trincomalee. After that our group members had the opportunity to visit some of the houses of the people in Trincomalee and shared the experience and discussed about the problems and challenges that they face in their day today life.

They other main event that we had was the peoples forum which we built up with the help of God Bey and China Bey people. Through this event we came to know that the people of these villages face security problem and they could not do their livelihood activities due to the un-secure situation of the area.
