Third Gammadda Door-to- Door campaign report launched

The 2018 (third) edition of the “Gammadda” report on Socio -Economic Challenges in rural Sri Lanka, commonly known as the ‘Door-to-Door’ report, was launched at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH) yesterday.

The final report was handed over to the Capital Maharaja Organization by Peradeniya University Vice Chancellor Prof. Upul Dissanayake. The Gammadda Door-to- Door campaign is the initial step of the Gammadda process. It was organised and launched in 2016 to identify hardships faced by individuals and villages in most rural areas of the country and highlight those issues by News First which belongs to the Capital Maharaja Organisation and supported by the Peradeniya University.

The report is a partnership between the Peradeniya University and the Gammadda Foundation, where combined teams of researchers travelled across Sri Lanka over many weeks visiting homes and talking to people. The information was collated and analysed by the University team led by Prof. Tilak Bandara under the leadership of Prof. Upul Dissanayake. Two previous reports were compiled and released in 2016 and 2017.

The fourth step of the ‘Gammadda’ will commence from July 18 and the launch of the latest research initiative across deep, rural Sri Lanka.The team from Gammadda and the Peradeniya University will fan out across the country and focus on compiling information on the various hardships faced by communities. This time, the teams will be using the very latest in technology, including a ‘Geo-Spatial App’ specially designed for this purpose.
