We plan to hold fundraising dinner dance, Pahan Silu 2019, on April 6th, 2019, at Hilton Los Angeles, in Glendale, California.
Our projects for the fundraiser are as follows
Provide funds necessary for vocational training, medical needs, counselling for a home, in Embilipitya Sri Lanka, which houses sexually exploited teenage mothers from the age of 10-18 years along with their infants. This home has 18 resident teenagers and 12 infants and at this time. 6 are pregnant.
These young girls were victimized due to poverty, death of parents, mothers gone abroad for employment, fathers addicted to drugs & alcohol and lack of parental guidance & protection. Dishonesty & merciless acts of adults ruined these young lives.
Our goal is to help rehabilitate them so they can return to society as productive citizens. Estimated cost $20,000/.
Home, in Embilipitya Sri Lanka
Provide scholarships to Visakhians with financial difficulties from grade 11-13. Estimated cost $5,000/.
