Land rights training for the leaders

NAFSO is leading land rights campaign among affected people around the country.  Kalpitiya fisherfolk communities affected by tourism zone in Kalpitiya is one of the area where we work. Irudeniyaya communities around 13 villages affected with the proposed elephant corridor from Kahalla- Pallakele wild life sanctuary to Hakwatuna oya reservoir. Mullikulam community affected with militarization and then tourism promotion in the area.  Negombo people affected from tourism promotion and islands of the lagoon are being occupied by investors. Simillarly, Paanama people in the east coast are face military threats at the beginning and now the issue is same as many other places. The military occupied land now converted to tourism and Paanama Lagoon Cabana is running by Navy with super class rates.
All these places, it is farmers, fishers, fish workers and women are the worst hit with these activities.
How to face these issues is our dilemma. But this should not undermine the brave and committed engagements of Somasiri, Dinesh, Pathmanathan, Suba, Kumari, Shirani, Abey, Saman and many men & women in those places.
We have conducted the land right training  for these leaders at NEGOMBO NAFSO Training center on  09 th and 10 of August .
Main focus 
*To conduct the Social analyzes to understand the issues and found the root courses.
*To Educate  on VGGT and GSSSF
*Educations of Land Law and UN mechanization.
*To prepare action plan for the Future
