This approach is based on the growing evidence that sustainable impact toward reconciliation and peacebuilding is best achieved by combining interpersonal approaches that engage individuals and communities in skills building and attitude change and institutional approaches that are led by government to implement supportive policies and mechanisms.

The purpose of the USAID Social Cohesion and Reconciliation (SCORE) Activity is to strengthen Sri-Lankan-led efforts to advance social cohesion and reconciliation. SCORE seeks to address certain underlying challenges to reconciliation by fostering a shared and inclusive Sri Lankan identity, reducing socio-economic and political disparities that undermine social cohesion, and enhancing community resilience through multiple capacity building initiatives. SCORE is designed to achieve the results listed under the following scope of work:

  • Promote a cohesive Sri Lankan Identity
  • Reduce socioeconomic disparities and exclusion
  • Enhance community resilience
