The Green Recovery Program in Sri Lanka was a partnership between American Red Cross, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and Environmental Foundation (EFL). Under this program a project to support the beneficiaries of the Community Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Program (CRRP) in the Eastern Province through promoting waste management and home gardening was carried out from October 2008 to September 2009. Around 250 beneficiaries received home gardening support under this program, out of which 35 got a complete home garden in the their compound. The project targeted households in Pottuvil and Thirukkovil divisions where women are burdened with the responsibility of providing nutrition to the family under dire economic conditions.
