Sustainable Peace through Social Development Cooperation Circle (CC) is based out of Dharga Town, Sri Lanka, which is a multi-ethnic community. There exists ethnic tension, so bridge-building is highly essential in the area. All CC members are active in different social voluntary organizations and give guidance and counseling to members of all communities in Dharga so as to avert religious conflicts. They work toward a peaceful society with active citizens and do so by organizing awareness programs.
