Movement for National Land and Agricultural Reform MONLAR Charity Profile
MONLAR (Movement for Land and Agricultural Reform) was initiated in 1990, by activists associated with All Lanka Peasant Congress (ALPC),one of the oldest peasant movements in the country. This was a response to the need to promote a wide understanding of the serious economic, social and political crisis that gave rise to the youth uprisings in Sri Lanka in 1971 and repeated in 1988 -1990 during which 60,000 young people disappeared ( got killed ) within the two years and to promote people’s engagement in working out solutions.
We work with rural, small scale and marginal farmers in education and development of skills in ecological agriculture to undertake such activity at household , community and regional levels.
