In search of a new life | ஓர் புதிய வாழ்க்கை தேடி

Shell fish harvesting is a traditional livelihood for the people in Kinniya in Trincomalee District. Unfortunately this industry is in the brink of extinction due to the numerous challengers the harvesters have to face. Not having canoes, inability to harvest in the rainy season are some burning issues which prevent them from earning a steady income from this once lucrative industry. People of Kinniya are requesting the attention and the support of the authorities to save the shell fish industry.

Kahlideen Faisdeen, a young mobile storyteller trained under the "Mobile Storytelling" program launched by SDJF in collaboration with iVoice and Neelan Thiruchelvam Trust (NTT) wants the authorities to look into this matter and do the justice to the community.
