The Thawalama Development Foundation (TDF) was established on 25th of April 1994 to support and assist in the implementation of Project Thawalama approved by the
Ministry of Defense on 14th of January 1994.

The aim of this project was to stem the exodus of the Sinhala population from the strategic Yan Oya basin due to separatist terrorist threats and attacks. Thawalama literally means a caravan that travels from the metropolis to remote villages for the transportation of much needed goods and commodities.

Since the assistance given by the government was inadequate even to meet the basic needs of affected villages in the Yan Oya basin Project Thawalama was initiated to assist these villages. It envisaged improving the economy in affected villages with help organized from affluent areas in the rest of the country.r dies from a water- or sanitation-related disease

Commode Seat Donation Project
Most of our soldiers whose limbs have been amputated hail from remote villages where the toilets they use are either pit latrines or those equipped with squatting pans.

Therefore these soldiers with one or both limbs amputated finds it difficult if not impossible to use such toilets when they go home from their regimental rehabilitation centers.

There is a simple solution to this problem....

Awakening the Weli Oya Villagers
>> Economically depressed Sinhala villages where the land is arid sans proper irrigation facilities have been abandoned due to the slightest separatist terrorist threat

A TRAGEDY THAT COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED
>> Sinhala villages in the Kebithigollewa Divisional Secretariat Area first came under LTTE threat during the Eelam 111 war and these threats intensified and several villages were attacked on or about 1990.

TDF has no connection whatsoever with Sudu Nelum Movement
>> TDF has no connection whatsoever with organizations of similar names subsequently established by the Sudu Nelum Movement to promote a political peace package. While the aim of such organizations is federalism, the aim of the TDF runs contradictory to this in that it is committed to protect and preserve the unity and territorial integrity of Lanka.
