The worst forms ofchild labour are defined in “The Convention concerning theProhibition and Immediate Action for the Elimination of theWorst Forms of Child Labour”, adopted by the InternationalLabour Organization (ILO) in 1999 as ILO Convention No 182.The strategy to be followed is threefold: Prevention, Protectionand Prosecution. In 2011 Terre des Hommes Netherlands sup-ported 79 060 vulnerable children, 910 victims of abuse, 112sexually exploited children, 83 trafficked children and 1585child labourers through our partner organisations.One of the children supported is nine year old Tania.

About Society of Mother of Sorrows Servants of Mary (SMSSM) Society of Mother of Sorrows Servants of Mary was started way back in 1894 by five women pro- moting women’s education in India. Right from its inception the organisation was involved in welfare and developmental activities, which include run- ning various educational institutions mainly for poor children and especially for girls and children with disabilities. The organisation started its work in Kalgumalai in the Madurai District in Tamil Nadu, in 1911 by establishing a primary school along with a small boarding home. At present the organisation is running a pre-primary, a primary, a secondary school, two boarding homes and reme- dial school for working girls.

The overall objective of the project is to improve the living condition of disadvantaged and other vulnerable child- ren & women by realising their rights to participation, protec- tion, and development in terms of education, health and socio- economic development. JUT provides remedial education for school going children, non-formal education for school drop- outs to put them back in mainstream education, vocational training for disadvantaged youth, health care to children and women and human rights education to women and children.

In the process of programme implementation at small scale, the organisation assisted abused, abandoned and neglected children along with the local unemployed and homeless young people of Makandura villages and its surrounding. The main goal of the organisation is “to assist the poorest children, who have suffered all forms of abuse, deprived youth and less fortunate families to become productive and responsible citizens, and to improve the lives and livelihoods of ill-fated members of the local community.” Terre des Hommes supports Makandura Rural Projects since 1988.T E R R E D E S H O M M E S N E T H E R L A N D S - A N N U A L R E P O R T 2 0 11 23 SRI LANK A
    • armed men along with some other villagers and none of them returned. Her mother remarried and abandoned Sasikala when she was an infant. Her grandmother looked after her when the war broke out. Sasikala’s village was attacked and approxima- tely 60 villagers were killed, including Sasikala’s grandfather and some other close relatives. Sasikala and her grandmother sought asylum in a refugee camp. At the age of seven, Sasikala helped her grandmother selling hoppers on the street. Poverty and war made her grandmother decide to give Sasikala away as a domestic worker to a wealthy family in Colombo. It was her job to look after the baby in the house. Sasikala was sick of homesickness which eventually made her grandmother take her back. She continued to go to school in the refugee camp and studied up to grade five. Living conditions in the refugee camp were so bad, and her grandmother was old and had difficulties making ends meet, therefore Sasikala was admitted to Jeeva Jothy Children’s Home when she was eleven years old. She continued to go to school and Bharatha dance was her favourite subject. In 2007 she was selected to study Bharatha dance at the University of Jaffna. At that time there was no road transport to Jaffna because of the war, so she used to travel by ship from Trincomalee to Jaffna.THE STORY OF SASIKALAWhen Sasikala was a young girl, disaster struck.

Since then Jeeva Jothy developed into a professional organisation providing a safe place for 80 war-affected girls. The organisation works towards the empowerment of war- affected girls by providing a safe home, education, life skills and child rights education. Jeeva Jothy has a special focus on sports, arts and crafts. It has been a pioneer for girls’ participation in sports. Among others, it successfully formed the first female karate team in Sri Lanka and has the first FIFA licensed female Tamil beach football referee. In 2011 Terre des Hommes Netherlands continued its phasing out strategy for Sri Lanka. One of the projects that closed down was Jeeva Jothy. For many years Jeeva Jothy provided shelter for war affected girls. In 2010 Terre des Hommes Netherlands and Jeeva Jothy mutually agreed that the rationale for the home was no longer there and decided to close down the project.T E R R E D E S H O M M E S N E T H E R L A N D S - A N N U A L R E P O R T 2 0 11 24 SRI LANK A
