Fisheries Community Empowerment

Mannar is predominantly a fishing community though some do engage in agriculture and other trades. The program in Mannar has developed over the years to empower the community through focused interventions to the fishing community. 

Our program focuses on strengthening the Fisheries Corporative Societies and Rural Fisheries Organisations to become champions of the community. Trainings on accounting and book keeping, good governance are given to office bearers so that they become a trusted body by the community and the authorities.

In addition building capacities of fishermen and entrepreneurs is also part of our interventions. Our micro enterprise development program known as HEED supports the fishermen to be released from the clutches of middlemen as well as to improve their businesses through additional assets. We also work with other stake holders and partners to bring about a sustainable development to the communities.
