The Sri Lankan civil war left women having to migrate abroad to find work after losing their husbands. After that, their children were left behind with no parental care.
This project believes in holistically supporting young people by preparing them with education and employable skills. For instance, there are three primary goals over the next three years: empowering displaced and disadvantaged children through education, developmental support and a safe living environment.
Three small family-style homes provide displaced children with a secure family-like environment. All children are referred to our care by government departments and educated within the community. In addition, a low ratio of carers is maintained to ensure each child’s overall physical, emotional, mental and intellectual development.
In conclusion, the key to establishing greater sustainability is through a fully functioning farm, providing skills training for young people through a Vocational Training Centre. The farm generates produce and income for the homes, while the Vocational Training Centre helps prepare teenagers for their transition to independent living through short courses focused on agriculture or sewing.
This project currently cares for 32 children and sponsors 29.
