Sarvodaya

Via International is proud to partner with Sarvodaya USA and the Shramadana Movement, the largest people's organization in Sri Lanka. Sarvodaya is Sanskrit for 'Awakening of All' and Shramadana means to donate effort. The island-wide integrated community development program implemented in those villages, the organization is currently involved in resettlement, reconstruction and reconciliation activities in the war affected North and East of Sri Lanka, and "Deshodaya", a National Reawakening program which aims to promote good governance and democracy. 
Sarvodaya actively engages people of all religions and ethnic backgrounds building houses side by side for and with Christians, Buddhists, Muslims and Hindus. Peace teams are led by Muslim, Christian and Hindu Sarvodaya personnel. The Movement consciously directs its efforts to people of all religious persuasions. Its purpose is not to proselytize but to help participants see their common humanity.
