Tell us about your partnerships
We have partnership with many different organizations. Some are WHO, CAMH, UNICEF, World Vision, IMHO, Basic Needs, VSO, Swiss Red Cross, CARE international, Kinderburg, American Jewish World Service and some local oranizations.
Are you currently targeting other specific populations, locations, or markets for your innovation? If so, where and why?
I am targeting two districts that were badly affected by the recently ended civil war in Sri Lanka. These are Killinochchi and Mullaithivu districts in the Northern province.
What type of operating environment and internal organizational factors make your innovation successful?
A Space for innovation within the ministry of Health in Sri Lanka and support from local health administrators help to implement the project. We try to create a non-hierarchical team of workers who are motivated to help this marginalized group of people. Capacity building through experiential learning, limited didactic teaching and continuous support help build capacity.
