Poor families in Sri Lanka are now trapped between the threat of the Coronavirus and hunger. The strict curfews have meant no work, no income and no food for daily wage earners, and children are now at serious risk of malnutrition. We are providing emergency food parcels to help families survive together, and keep vulnerable children out of harmful orphanages and at home where they belong.
DID YOU KNOW?
CHILDREN ARE ESTIMATED TO LIVE IN ORPHANAGES IN SRI LANKA, WITHOUT HOPE OF A FAMILY, AN EDUCATION - OR A FUTURE.
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.
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
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,
OUR SUCCESS STORIES
PROVIDING EDUCATIONOur Their Future Today International Preschool children were very excited to show off their Kitchen Garden where they are not only learning about growing the fruits and vegetables but their health and nutritional benefits too. We are very proud that the level of teaching standards here is exceptionally high, which was acknowledged recently by Global Giving an international crowdfunding organisation who came to inspect and verify our projects as part of their global due diligence.
EMPOWERING GIRLSTheir Future Today's Bakery building is now open! This wonderful opportunity for institutionalised girls to be able to learn a new skill is so exciting. Not only are they learning to bake but they are also having fun outside the confines of their usually grim and boring existence, and enjoying a different experience and new tastes.
FAMILIES TOGETHERGamage's family are so incredibly happy and grateful to be together, despite the fact they have no water, electricity or sanitary facilities and had to sleep on the ground until we bought them a bed. We made some house improvements and initially supported with a bursary place at Their Future Today's International Preschool, and school books for the children so they can attend school, and helped create a basket making business, to provide income and sustainability.
TRANSFORMING CAREOur 18-month specialist childcare training in Ruhunu baby orphanage concluded in August. All Their Future Today housemothers passed their assessments and received certificates. This once dark and sinister place has finally been transformed into a happier and more positive 'family' environment and the care and conditions are much improved. This State Orphanage is now an example for all in Sri Lanka, the real success will be when it finally closes its doors, and becomes a community centre instead.
