In December 2021, Malkanthi a sri lankan mason went to Nepal to train the masons of Kanchan Nepal to build a pumpkin-shaped rainwater harvesting tank.

Malkanthi is a native of Athiliwewa Monaragala (Sri Lanka), a mother of three children.She is the first female mason trained by the Lanka Rainwater Harvesting Forum and has encouraged and trained other women as masons in the Monaragala district.

On her way to Nepal, she swept away all gender barriers and stereotypes to share her knowledge and train Nepali masons to build a rainwater harvesting tank made of ferrocement. Malkanthi is a model of the power of women's empowerment. We hope she will encourage other young people, especially women, to become who they want to be.

Join Malkanthi's journey from Athiliwewa, Nepal to educate and empower yourself to succeed!
