Adoption of Project Sri Lanka’s 10th Village, Vikumgama, on 16th January 2012.

On 16th January 2012, Trustees Joy and David Cooper visited the village of Vikumgama which is to be the site of the 10th community building and pre-school. Vikumgama lies 17km inland from Matara town and is home to a community of 1090 people, 449 of whom are Sarvodaya Society members.

Local people work as labourers in paddy fields and tea plantations. The photo here shows the site where the new building will stand and an existing government owned building which serves as a community health centre and temporary school.
