MULLAITIVU, Sri Lanka [ACTED News] – ACTED has supported 15 returnee communities in Mullaitivu District, Northern Sri Lanka, to develop community-based development plans. The planning process, which was led by local community based organisations, encouraged the participation of beneficiaries to help communities identify core problems, their causes and impacts as well as to identify and prioritize potential solutions in order to develop a community vision for the future.

ACTED is now working with each community to implement their plans through the development of small infrastructure projects, including well construction, road rehabilitation and the renovation of community centres.
