  • Kaffir culture in Sri Lanka by Kannan Arunasalam

    The 'Kaffirs' of Sri Lanka started arriving from the eastern shores of Africa in the 1500s with the Portuguese, and later in more waves with the different colonizers of Sri Lanka. 'Kaffir culture' is a video portrait of one such community of Kaffirs and the struggle to keep their culture alive in the face of falling numbers. Written and produced by Kannan Arunasalam. Music by Ceylon Kaffir Manja, arranged by Jesse Hardman. Special thanks to Sweta Velpillay (on sound), Nethra Samarawickrema (for help with translations), Leah Worthington (background research) and Greg Kelly (Radio Netherlands) Note: the word 'Kaffir' has ugly racist connotations in Africa and Europe. This is NOT the case in Sri Lanka. Original can be seen here: http://www.vimeo.com/7234191

    Sri Lanka: Urban low-income communities are among the most economically deprived & the worst affected are our children. Main challenges these children face in this community are; social exclusion and isolation from their parents due to alcoholism, extra-marital affairs & divorce. We also identified that the main obstacle for education is poverty & the majority of these children are studying up until ordinary level (G.C.E O/L) & find jobs. Majority of the children (18 out of 30) have given up their education after G.C.E O/L in order to provide the opportunity for their younger siblings to perceive their education. At urban neighbourhoods the poverty could not be defined solely on economic factors. However it has many other forms such as, limited space (over populated), Shanty culture (unsta...

  • Culture in Sri Lanka

    The culture of Sri Lanka mixes modern elements with traditional aspects and is known for its regional diversity. Sri Lankan culture has long been influenced by the heritage of Theravada Buddhism passed on from India, and the religion's legacy is particularly strong in Sri Lanka's southern and central regions. South Indian cultural influences are especially pronounced in the northernmost reaches of the country. The history of colonial occupation has also left a mark on Sri Lanka's identity, with Portuguese, Dutch, and British elements having intermingled with various traditional facets of Sri Lankan culture. Due to Sri Lanka's prominence as an ancient trading hub, cultural influences ranging from East Asia to the Middle East have shaped the island, particularly that of the Sinhalese people....

At urban neighbourhoods the poverty could not be defined solely on economic factors. However it has many other forms such as, limited space (over populated), Shanty culture (unstable houses aligned one on the other in a limited space), limited or no access to quality infrastructure in order to meet basic needs (water, drainage systems and shared toilets) and privacy. At RRSF we are concerned & committed in supporting children of these communities in order to gain better life by having good education.
