A Community Hall for Dahamana

Damahana is a rural village in Balangoda in the Ratnapura district in Sri Lanka.
With the establishment of the e-Village project in Dahamana, the
community has begun to see the value and importance of modern
technology and its impact on development.

But now it has expanded and grown, thus creating a need for a bigger place.
Simultaneously, the village had a long felt need for a common meeting place
where all its public and social functions could be held.
With these intentions, the community on its own initiative collected funds to
 embark on the project to build a community hall.

of the whole village. Within a short period of time they erected the columns for
the ground floor,
 costing nearly two hundred thousand rupees. Each family contributed either
in cash and/or labour to achieve this task. The land, a five-perch block, for
the hall was donated by a businessman.

The building, once completed will have two stories comprising of a main
auditorium, lecture halls and library. With nearly 20% of the work completed.
The community is in need of your support to see their dream fulfilled.
