PowerPoint Presentation:

Our Mission... "To create a caring and stable world for our children, by providing food, shelter, healthcare and education”

PowerPoint Presentation:

Our Beliefs... Food, shelter, healthcare and education are fundamental rights of any child whether they are with their parents or not A child's experiences shape the rest of his or her life. Unless action is taken early, a hurt and damaged child could become a troubled adult

PowerPoint Presentation:

Our Promise... Zero administrative costs in the UK All proceeds from our events go to our contingency fund Annual accounts published in our brochure

PowerPoint Presentation:

Our Achievements...

PowerPoint Presentation:

Arobanam has expanded it’s scope into opening day care centers This is badly needed due to a large number of widows with children

PowerPoint Presentation:

Day Care Centre Batticoloa There are a large number of widows with very young children The day care centre for children is urgently required so these women are able to do casual work to earn some money

PowerPoint Presentation:

Day Care Centre Batticoloa We are now funding two day care centres managed by the Church of American Ceylon Mission (CACM) in Vaharai, Batticaloa This supports children under 5 years old

PowerPoint Presentation:

Arobanam has assisted in reopening Bharathi Illam which was supported by us prior to May 2009

Bharathi Children Home now houses 80 children Arobanam sponsors 50 children including some from our contingency fund

During a trip to Jaffna DWF foster care children visited Paramananda Ashram near Nelliaddy

Our Projects...

We have set up an after school learning centre to help the 100 children at the Anaiyoor refugee camp Madurai, South India This is run by SPACE (Society for Peoples Action for Change and Education), an organisation that is registered with the Indian authorities

PowerPoint Presentation:

As well as providing after school assistance, snacks & milk are also given to the children which is especially important as the majority are malnourished

PowerPoint Presentation:

University students at a meeting at DWF office

PowerPoint Presentation:

Most of the university students receive help because a good friend of Arobanam left £40,000 for higher education in his will Although Dr Siva is no longer with us his memory lives on … Leaving such a legacy will ensure these students have a chance for a real future…
