It is a matter of “pulling out all the stops”, as much as possible, so that people with #disabilities can achieve their own goals, reach their own conclusions and get to places that would otherwise be difficult for them to reach.
In short, the goal is to use all the different tools we can find (especially our human resources) to train the brains of people with disabilities in order to overcome any obstacles we encounter along the way. Travel helps persons with disabilities to achieve their goals.
Manique Gunaratne gave the opportunity to a group of persons with Diverse disabilities to visit the Iranamadu Tank in Kilinochchi in April 2022.
Iranamadu Tank is located in Northern Province, Sri Lanka. Iranamadu tank is one of the man-made largest #reservoirs of Sri Lanka. Iranamadu village and the tank belong to Killinochi District. Iranamadu tank has been a traditional #fishing ground for generations. It is located 8km from the city of Kilinochi. Water reservoir capacity is 131.4mcm. Sri Lanka is a popular #tourist country, Iranamadu tank is a place to be visited on your way to Jaffna peninsula. Killinochi district people are facilitated with irrigation services, fishing industry and sanitation services. This is one of the deepest tanks in Sri Lanka.
King Dhatusena built the Iranamadu tank another. In 1920 the tank was repaired and reconstructed. People in Killinochi mostly do farming so they are very useful with the Iranamadu tank. Iranamadu Irrigation Development Project is a basic part of the arrangement to Jaffna for the passing of water on the one hand and the treatment of the downstream canal system as ordered by the target group population on the other. The choice of the project area is determined by the nature of the Project and it includes the Iranamadu irrigation scheme. The tank is now allowed for fishing and a project is proposed to extract drinking water from the tank.
