SRI LANKA: OUT OF POVERTY
Sujithar is a widow who lives alone in a ramshackle house in the town of Muthur in Sri Lanka. During the nation's 20 year conflict, displacement and tsunami, Sujithar survived on what little she could grow on her small plot of land.
With UMCOR's help, Sujithar and others like her can learn new skills to work their way out of poverty. Sujithar participated in UMCOR's soybean project where she produced up to 500 kilos of soybeans.
