Gammadda Announces Partnership with two Major US Universities

Sri Lanka’s Gammadda Movement announced today that it had finalised partnerships with The Watson Institute at Brown University and The Clinton School at the University of Arkansas for the year 2022. Both graduate and undergraduate students will work with Gammadda on carefully selected projects, as part of an academic programme.Brown University, established in 1764 is the 7th oldest university in the US and is an Ivy League college.

The Clinton School is a branch of the University of Arkansas and is the newest of the American Presidential schools.Despite major highway developments and an expansive road network, rural Sri Lanka struggles with a lack of basic infrastructure, especially access to clean drinking water, which is the predominant crisis. Although often not understood and misunderstood, the human-elephant conflict is another problem faced by rural communities, resulting in casualties on both sides.

A vastly disparate income distribution between higher and lower income groups, has meant that real poverty and human suffering goes uncaptured and unaddressed.It is this void that Gammadda began to address over a decade ago.“The Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Studies is excited to be partnering with the Gammadda Initiative to provide Brown students with valuable hands-on experience and working knowledge of humanitarian issues in Sri Lanka…”– Seth Stulen, The Watson Institute, Brown University.The Dean of The Clinton School, Victoria M. DeFrancesco Soto noted that Gammadda’s past international project opportunities have been outstanding and added, “we are thrilled to see Clinton School students working with them again this summer.”‘Systemic Change’Gammadda, entrenched in rural Sri Lanka now for over a decade

Credit: PennDOT HARRISBURG, Pa. - A judge has ordered a temporary halt to Gov. Tom Wolf’s plan to toll as many as nine major bridges on interstates in Pennsylvania, siding Wednesday with Cumberland County and a handful of municipalities that are challenging the process as both illegal and unconstitutional.Commonwealth Court Judge Ellen Ceisler ordered the halt, saying the state Department of Transportation must stop all studies, right-of-way acquisitions, construction or work under any contracts, and put off any planned hearings, meetings or spending.Wolf’s push for tolling comes as states increasingly look to user fees to make up for declining gas tax revenue that is not keeping up with the demands of fixing highways and bridges.
