MenCare programming kicks off in World Vision’s Watawala Area Development Program, Sri Lanka

In March 2016, MenCare partner World Vision Lanka launched its first cycle of fatherhood programming in the Watawala Area Development Program (ADP) in Sri Lanka. Approximately 60 participants from 24 families attended the program’s first session, which was held in the town of Hatton.

The families who participated are from Vellai Oya tea estate. They reported being pleased with the day’s events, and that their children enjoyed themselves playing games and making arts and crafts.
