  • Descripción


    We believe that if somebody is hungry don´t give him/her a fish. Give them a fishing rod and show them how to catch fish. We want Weligama people ´´to stand up and stand tall´´.
    That’s why we believe that helping local children to receive education will change the course of Sri Lanka.
    We believe that education gives independence.
    We believe in mother nature.

    Everything we do, we do it with Aloha (with love), with Sri Lankan authenticity, always accompanied with small details.
    We create multicultural community and partnerships, and the earned money are used for supporting Weligama´s unprivileged children (school material).
    We are in partnership with the government's officer to identify the kids in need of help.

    The foundation was created in 2010 to help Sri Lankan families, six years after the Tsunami. It was supported by a European NGO until in 2016. The activities were restarted by Janaka’s family and Alice from France in 2019, in collaboration with volunteers from Workaway that brought their talent and experiences to the team. But all activities were put on hold with the pandemic.

    Now in 2022 Janaka is reaching out to Workaway community to give their time for good cause in Sri Lanka and restart activities to help unprivileged school children from Weligama area. Janaka owns a big unfinished house with a lot of potential, and our idea is to turn it into a hostel and guest house in order to generate income for the association to be independent.

    If you want to give meaning to your travel experience in Sri Lanka, come and volunteer with us in Weligama :)
