Last month Tamil Engineers Foundation made a donation of $2000.00 to SLS Trust of Srilanka (via Sustainable Inc of NSW) to expand the Goat Farming Unit in their Model Farm in Maviddapuram, Jaffna.

The Model Farm in Maviddapuram has been in operation for almost 2 years. This integrated organic farm is a pioneering effort to promote water saving, crop diversification and organic farming in the North and East of Sri Lanka. Funded by private individuals out of strong conviction of the role it can play for the sustainability of land, water and public health.

The Ministry of Agriculture of Northern Province has awarded first prize to this farm by choosing it as the best organic farm in the Jaffna District.

I am sure that TEF’s funding will greatly help the Model Farm to expand the Goat Farming Unit in establishing a new shelter & purchasing more Goats to promote highly successful Indian Goats in SL.

We thank & appreciate Mr. Nithianandan & his team of SLS Trust of SriLanka for their great effort in promoting water saving, crop diversification and organic farming in the North and East of Sri Lanka.

We sincerely thank the our donors who contributed to make this possible
