Vajira Sri Children’s Development Center
“Sri Jayawardenapura Vajira Sri Children’s Development Center” was established in 1983 with thirty destitute children who were victims of the prevailing ethnic civil war in the Northern part of the Island, with the support of the Asst. Govt. Agent of Morawewa at that time. Initially, Rev. Vajira Sri Thero brought 101 orphaned children from the Morawewe refugee camp which was located in the Trincomalee district and provided them with all the basic needs as well as the education for them.
At present, there are nearly 330 destitute children of both sexes who have been sent here for rehabilitation by the Department of Probation. There are about 2,000 children who had been given homely care and re- integrated to the society.
At the Vajira Sri Children’s Development Center there are 30 resident staff members, who work for the benefit of the children. The Chief Incumbent, Rev. Dr Hunupolagama Vajira Sri Nayaka Thero is the executive director of the Home. He is responsible for all the activities.
All our expenses are met through the generous donations given by our donors. Our organization is fully committed to the principles of inter-faith harmony and human values. Hence, we carry out our work without any discretion to race, gender, class, religious affiliation, physical or mental limitations. We treat all the children with similar status.
