Better Life Style for Tea Plantation people.
“Safe Environment in Tea Estates” is a project implemented by SETIK in selected tea estates of the Matale District of Central Province. Under this project we were able to renovate and reconstruct the line rooms of the estates and provide them with better water and sanitation facilities. Meantime the beneficiaries were made more aware about how to uplift their life pattern with the present context. With the help of awareness, education and self employment training programmes we were able to help these marginalized tea plantation people to stand on their own.
We covered the estates of Rattotamale, Asgiriya, Nagala and Wewelmada under this project funded by the Catholic Relief Services of America. On 15th November 2008 the above mentioned facilities were handed over to the beneficiaries by Rev. Fr. George Sigamoney - the Director of Setik and Rev. Fr. Camillus Janz who were accorded a warm welcome by the people of the estate.
