Children Belong in Loving Families,

Not Orphanages 

Our holistic approach works from the grassroots up

to promote family care in Sri Lanka and improve the lives of orphaned and abandoned children.

From birth to adulthood we reunite, educate, support and strengthen disadvantaged and forgotten children and families of all faiths.

 

TFT helps them succeed to escape the cycle of poverty, and makes their lives better, forever.

DID YOU KNOW?

Sri Lanka Map

21,000

OVER

CHILDREN ARE ESTIMATED TO LIVE IN ORPHANAGES IN SRI LANKA, WITHOUT HOPE OF A FAMILY, AN EDUCATION - OR A FUTURE.

POVERTY, DISCRIMINATION, DISABILITY, WAR AND NATURAL DISASTER ARE ALL FACTORS

THAT CAUSE CHILDREN TO BECOME SEPARATED FROM THEIR FAMILIES

 WE WORK TIRELESSLY TO

GIVE EVERY FORGOTTEN CHILD 

THEIR FUTURE TODAY

80%

OF CHILDREN IN ORPHANAGES
HAVE AT LEAST ONE LIVING PARENT BUT ARE GIVEN UP BY LOVING FAMILIES, IN CRISIS, IN THE HOPE OF A BETTER LIFE,
NOT UNDERSTANDING THE LONG TERM DAMAGE CAUSED.

No child should live in poverty

No child should be alone

Our footprint is small but our impact is big and our voice is being heard at the highest levels to make every child count.

 

We are working towards social change and collaborating with global specialist partners to advocate and raise awareness of the harm caused to  children in orphanages and share

Alternative Family and Foster Care knowledge 

by providing training at the highest level to 

National Childcare Services, the Judiciary, law students, political leaders, civil society organizations, faith groups, universities, local NGO's  and communities to keep families together where it is safe and possible.

 

This emergence of knowledge has created a new and TransFormaTional understanding 

Children Belong in Loving Families,

Not Orphanages
