After my graduation from Eastern University of Sri Lanka for Biological Science, I have moved to Colombo from Batticaloa and worked as a Graphic Designer for an Advertising firm. As I was born in a place where the community is suffering more than 30 years for food, health and humanitarian assistance I have decided to go back to my own community. Therefore I have joined as a social worker for the Action Contre-la Faim (ACF) team in Trincomalee, and closely worked with the communities Muthur-East and Batticaloa North. I have witnessed, learned and shared many valuable things from the communities and that helped me to take a firm decision about my career. I have worked for Danish Refugee Council (DRC) and UNDP before joining the USAID/SLTI program where currently I’m working for. As a Program Development personality in Developments Alternatives Inc. for USAID/SLTI program, learned lot of things in the field and that is motivated me to involve peace building activities.
Why I want peace:
I have witnesed the worst cases resulted by the war as I'm living in Batticaloa - Sri Lanka where the 30 years of ethnic clashes between Tamils and Singhalese completely destroyed the infrastructures as well as cultural values of both.
Interests and activities:
Working with community. Reconstruct the social links.
