Support SERVE

Hello ... and thank you so much for visiting this page!

SERVE ... Appeal for help!

SERVE is a Sri Lankan not-for-profit organization working with and for children and their families. We are a non-religious and non-political organization based on social work principles where we help those in need to help themselves without discrimination.

We work with marginalized, poverty stricken, abused and neglected children and families.

Our vision is to contribute to a society that supports and ensures equality, dignity and humaneness for all people, especially children. Our mission is to facilitate empowerment of people, especially children, through a quality, participatory, creative, and scientific process.

Since our humble beginning in 1999, SERVE has expanded its services to cover selected communities / locations in the Districts of Colombo, Kalutara, Monaragala and Kurunagala.

Our main projects and activities for 2016 are:

Child focused community development    
Resources Centers for Children which include libraries, indoor and outdoor games, support for education, children’s clubs, self help groups for mothers, and awareness programmes for children and their families. These are located in Colombo, Kalutara and Monaragala districts.

Since our inception we have partnered with a number of International organizations to implement our projects and have moved forward with their assistance.

However, due to growing demand for our services as well as the limitations of funding, we are compelled to seek the support of family, friends and well wishers to continue and further strengthen our work.

The specific work we seek assistance for includes:

1.    Sponsor nutritional snacks for a child living in prison
(For a Month LKR 1,600/= or £7.45 GBP / for a Week LKR 400/= or £1.89 GBP)

2.    Sponsor a child’s education, recreation and evening safety through SERVE community centres
(For a Month LKR 2,000/= or £9.30 GBP / for a Week LKR 500/= or £2.35 GBP)
