This profile was prepared when P. N. Singham was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2004.
Singham is changing the refugee camp model in Sri Lanka by permanently resettling those displaced by decades of armed conflict. Based on a model of integration, rather than isolation, his approach has brought dignity to the internally displaced people, and challenged the prejudices of the communities in the resettlement areas.
