Donate to a Build

From living in this...

A Gift that Lasts

With your donations, we have been able to fund building projects such as homes, wells, community centres, orphanages and schools — the aim being to break the cycle of poverty, transform communities, and awaken hope for children and families there.


A sturdy, safe home provides an essential base for children to grow up in a nurturing environment, free from fear and the threat of intruders and the harsh elements of Sri Lanka.  That stability ripples into every area of their growth and sense of promise for the future.

'The great use of life is to spend it for something that outlasts it.'

William James
