ABOUT SOMAWATHI HOME

A safe future

What began in late 2004 with the release of 24 boxes of medicines has become a sustainable aid project where hundreds of Sri Lankan children receive medical care and education. Our work is focused on the long term: we invest not only in providing a loving home for our 104 orphaned and abandoned children, but also in the best possible development of the children; the focus is entirely on education. Because it is our ambition that they will soon stand on their own feet and can look forward to a secure future.

Our Children

After the tsunami, it were mainly the children who lost their parents and could not turn to family; they found a safe home in our Somawathi Home. But what began as a relief program for these children, has become much more than just an orphanage. We work closely with the Sri Lankan Child protection when it comes to taking in new children with diverse backgrounds. All children remain with us at least until they are 18 years old. Until then, they are under the guardianship of the Trust and Somawathi Home remains their safe and loving home.

Assistance to the region

The Somawathi Home is grown in the course of time to much more than just an orphanange. There is a professional medical station on the premises established and we have self-organized additional education. These facilities are also available for free to the children and residents in the region.

Medical care is of great value for the area as well for the Montessori preschool and kindergarten, so parents have the opportunity to go to work. Even the monks from the nearby temples follow our computer classes enthusiastically. Thanks to your support we can offer this valuable assistance to the region.
