The project is aimed at Sri Lankan young adults, aged 13-19, to raise awareness on respect values for all humans alike, and on sexual health and well-being awareness.
Our mission is grounded in fundamental yet significant values aimed at fostering a more unified and respectful society. The specific focus of this project is on engaging with youths aged 13-19 in Sri Lanka, with the aspiration of inspiring and guiding them during this crucial stage of their lives. Our selection of topics stems from the recognition that certain subjects are often considered taboo, yet addressing them is essential for a better understanding of society as they transition into adulthood.
SUPPORTING TEA ESTATE WORKERS
Since 2021, WE Sri Lanka has been actively involved in providing essential dry ration donations to the most vulnerable families within the tea plantation communities.
This initiative was launched in response to the worsening economic crisis, which left numerous families grappling with the challenge of affording basic food necessities.
Our mission is, essentially, to provide regular essential food relief to the tea estate’s most neediest families.
This project stemmed from a desire to create a space specifically to encourage focus on women's wellbeing and to inform, raise awareness and openly discuss women's health topics considered more taboo in the Sri Lankan community and beyond.
We currently offer free virtual mindfulness sessions run every other month by our experienced practitioners Anupama and Lushani.
