About four hundred families are living in the village and the main occupation of the people is fishing. The village had been frequently affected by the ethnic conflict since 1985. Most of the people were displaced and had been living in refugee camps and welfare centres. Resettlement of the displaced started in 1995 is still in progress, sources said.

Salli Ambal Maha Vidiyalayam is the only institution in the village caters to the educational needs of students from Year 1 to GCE Advanced level. The school also had been affected by the conflict, sources said.

NECORD came to the rescue of Salli students, as the school did not possess enough classrooms and other facilities for quality teaching and learning processes. The new three-storied building opened on Sunday provided six additional classrooms and five rooms for the purpose of Activity room, Music room, Agriculture Unit, Staff room and Home Science room and an auditorium.

Parents said with the new three-storied building proper accommodation to all students have been provided and constraints to learning and teaching reduced.

Although the school was upgraded to Maha Vidiyalayam status last year but Sunday Trincomalee district parliamentarian Mr.R.Sampanthan unveiled the name board to this effect, sources said.
