Building Hope

Changing Lives

 Hi folks,
we've got another


So...  The new school term begins in April for Government schools, and students have been issued a book list full of items costing more than 5,000 rps. For many families, this cost is completely, almost laughably, unaffordable.


With hellacious increase to living costs, there has been little-to-no increase in salaries. Most months the families in this District are unable to meet their essential needs like food, rent, and bills... so this additional cost will be a huge difficulty for them

Only £15 will cover the cost

of a supplies pack for a child.

Who We Are

The Dust Project is a not-for-profit organization working in Sri Lanka to support children, strengthen local commerce, and provide foundational security for families to thrive in their communities.  


Through our Child Sponsorship program, and funding construction work as well as entrepreneurial and educational projects, our mission is to simply help where it’s most needed — building something that will last, empowering people to flourish.


What we Care About




Food, support, clothing and healthcare.  Help make a difference at the beginning of a child's life, and they will reap the benefits for the rest of it.


'You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.'

John Bunyan

Child Sponsorship

The school provides us with food when we don't have enough to eat.  If we are sick the school pays for us to see a doctor. Thanks to my sponsor I am hopeful about my future.

You send £30,

Through our unique sponsorship program, you can choose to support a child in several ways— a local child’s schooling costs, a child’s living cost in our hostel (orphanage), or both.  You can mix and match as your heart leads or as giving allows.

I receive £30.

You can also rest assured that 100% of your monthly donation goes to the support of your sponsored child.

All operating and administration costs are covered from other funds.
