FRIDSRO CHILD RIGHTS

A CHILD FRIENDLY COMMUNITY - CFC

"CFC works with at-risk children to ensure that they will be able to stay with their families and lead normal lives." This project is based on the principals we have learnt through our CBR work and is a Community Based Initiative. We do advocacy work, health clinics, awareness building, teacher training, self employment help and formation of children’s and parents groups. To date we are actively involved with over 1000 families in a holistic way to improve the lives of all children in Sri Lanka. Our main office is in Katugastota Kandy.

FRIDSRO CENTER FOR CHILD DEVELOPMENT - FCCD

"FCCD is based in Nuwara Eliya and consists of 5 locations Moonplains Estate, Galway Village, Mahagastotte Estate, Bandaranayaka Town, and Manickwatte Estate, where we provide preschool and day care facilities, after school care, health services and awareness building for the children of the plantation workers in the tea estates." This is an especially marginalized group in Sri Lankan society and our project is aimed at helping these children overcome the hurdles they face, empowering them to overcome their circumstances and break the cycle of poverty. Our primary campus is in Nuwara Eliya.

FRIDSRO CHILDRENS HOME - FCH

"FCH is where we serve orphans and destitute children." We strive to be the best guardians we can for the children in our care until they can be reunited with their parents or guardians, find new families through local adoption or are able to stand on their own two feet. Our goal is to nurture them through life to become healthy and able citizens of our country. The Children’s Home also encompasses a pre-school and an elder’s home. These children are resident with us at our main campus in Bokkawela.

What's happening now

23 of our kids are scheduled to visit their homes for one week to spend time with their parents and guardians. Please remember them in prayer that their visits might be good and a time of bonding and refreshment for all. The remaining children will have a trip to FCCD in Nuwara Eliya on the 10th.

Last night we had a great time watching the T20 Cricket Finals and watched Sri Lanka beat India to take the title. All the kids watched in the TV room, drinking coffee and having fun with a noise that must have been heard to Bokkawela when we finally won!

We also welcome a new volunteer - Linda from Sweden. Please keep an eye out for her and welcome her to our projects if you see her around any of our offices

Children got a chance to see the school bands where 35 schools participated and later went to the Victoria Park and had rides on the Children's train.
