Beyond Boundaries and Barriers
We believe in protecting the vulnerable and enhancing the socioeconomic conditions of children, families and communities. Children need to grow up in safe and secure family and social environments. Our efforts focus on creating sustainable revenue streams for smallholder dairy farmers, rural youth, men and women through integrated dairy farming and other livelihood support. This enables them to provide for their families and enjoy an improved quality of life. We endeavour to ensure that the rights and protection of women and children are safe-guarded, and communities have the opportunities they need to thrive.
Small holder diary farmer programme
Our vision is to grow dairy production and improve quality of life for smallholder farmer families across rural dry zone districts in the Northern, Eastern and North Central provinces empowering smallholder dairy farmer households; and rural youth. Low incomes and quality of living, undersupply of local milk to domestic market, low milk quality leading to low prices, limited processing options and wastage, inadequate cold chain infrastructure and poor technology access or use, inadequate livestock and land management practices, inadequate cooperation with industry stakeholders to meet current and future industry needs are some of the challenges faced by the smallholder farmers. Yugashakthi aims to increase incomes from higher quality and supply of local milk to the domestic market, livestock and land resources are sustainably managed and the dry zone farmers are empowered to meet the needs of the future dairy industry and help Sri Lanka achieve self-sufficiency in milk production.
