Gammadda Door-to-Door

Gammadda Door-to-Door campaign was first launched in 2016 to identify the hardships faced by individuals and villages in the most rural areas of the country, and highlight their issues. Second campaign was held in 2017 and following both these campaigns, reports produced. Gammadda door-to-door campaign gets supported by the University of Peradeniya.

In teams the Gammadda door-to-door campaign reach out the most rural areas and inquire into a plethora of issues faced by the locals. The main objective of this campaign is to identify the issues faced by our very own Sri Lankans who live in the rural villages amidst may difficulties. In its journey, Gammadda door-to-door campaign covers all 25 districts. The issues that get noted down during the campaign would get officially handed over to the University of Peradeniya. The University would analyse the datas and compile a final report. This report is what used to choose Gammadda 1000 projects.

1000 Projects

Gammadda was first introduced as a public forum initiative held in rural villages in 2013. The objective of this attempt was to identify issues that are hidden below the surface and thereby to bring the attention of the responsible authorities towards these issues faced by the citizens of Sri Lanka.

It gradually transformed into a humanitarian effort and by the end of July 2016, a 100-Day community development plan was set in place and launched. During the 100-Day Initiative, hundreds of urgently needed village-level solutions were identified as projects, funded, completed and vested with the public.

These projects and needs were identified through a research conducted with the support of the University of Peradeniya.

05 Key areas of pressing needs identified were
Pipe-borne drinking water,
Safe roads,
School buildings,
Sanitary facilities and
Elephant fences.

Following the 100-Day initiative, Gammadda community development work continued in the name of Gammadda 1000 Projects. The development projects undertaken by Gammadda encapsulates water purification, road renovation and construction, school and community building cocnstruction, drainage system implementation, construction of signal towers at fisheries piers, sanitation projects, mini-irrigation projects and related constructions and construction of elephant fences.

Gammadda initiative is meant to uplift living standards of Sri Lankans, by engaging in projects aimed at alleviating poverty, uplifting social and economic standards, enhancing livelihoods, and improving cultural diversity and dialogue between communities.

Gammadda has done a quite noticeable job in order to uplift rural Sri Lanka. With the passing of time, Gammadda community projects have touched thousands of people around the country. Gammadda is clear and focused about its role for the society and it is progressively working on it.

Gammadda Saviya

Gammadda Saviya is the final phase of Gammadda. However, this is a continuing process. When a Gammadda project gets completed and vested with the villagers, Gammadda Saviya is formed. As the name suggests, Gammadda Saviya is a committee formed with the villagers that operates to ensure the maintenance of the completed project. Gammadda Saviya also finds speedy solutions to other problems in the area. The committee consists of a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and members who are all villagers. The committee meetings are held under the supervision of Gammadda Secretariat.

Wewen Wewata

The foundation for the Gammadda “Gamin Gamata – Wewin Wewata” programme was laid following a broad study carried out by the Agriculture Faculty of the Peradeniya University, and experts in the field of irrigation technology. This national initiative got underway today, December 17, on the shores of the Bellankadawala Wewa in Palugaswewa, Anuradhapura.

Gammadda initiative partnered with The University of Peradeniya to carry out extensive field research into a single Cascade system in Anuradhapura, including geo-mapping ancient canal ways using modern mapping technology. This effort is a key part of the overall process of identifying all the elements of a single Cascade System, evaluating their current status and then planning reconstruction with the motive of bringing back the entire system to life. Sri Lanka’s ancient hydraulic innovations extend beyond the Cascade System and reveals a remarkably deep and complex knowledge of science and technology.

Gammadda V Force

The Gammadda V Force was launched with the objective of providing a platform for the youth to place the interests of the country before their’s and volunteer for a worthy cause. Gammadda V Force comprising of volunteers from all over the country set off to pre-planned locations to undertake their responsibility of building the nation. This volunteer program can be identified as a special program in the history of media. Following each volunteer program, the volunteers would be presented with medals to recognize their services. This would provide an opening for the medalists to spearhead similar projects.

As the first phase of Gammadda V-Force initiative, a clean up of Sigiriya was conducted on 21st of July 2018. This was carried out under the guidance of the Central Cultural Fund and the Archeological Department.
