Who we are
We are a team of compassionate people with a quest to rebuild lives. Our vision is to rebuild lives and restore self-sufficiency in the North and East of Sri Lanka.
Anbaalayam was founded by a group of volunteers in 2008 to assist the needy children and families affected by civil war, poverty and natural disasters in the North East and Central parts of Sri Lanka.
The main focus of Anbaalayam is to contribute towards children’s education through child sponsorship. Children from disadvantaged families are chosen and the funds are used for their educational expenses.
In recent times, in addition to providing water and sanitation facilities, Anbaalayam has also been implementing much needed livelihood support to single mothers and differently-abled people so that they can earn a small income and look after the basic needs of their families.
Our mission is to make sure all young people and children get all the support they need, when they need it, no matter what it is.
We want to build a world where no child or youth feels alone and gets every possible help they need as soon as possible.
