World Vision Sri Lanka is a Christian, relief, development and advocacy organisation working with all people regardless of their religion, caste, gender or ethnicity.
World Vision has been serving the people of Sri Lanka since 1977 in development and relief programmes spread across the Island.
The Area Development Programmes (ADPs) with their life span of 12 to 15 years, remain the flagship programme in World Vision’s work in Sri Lanka. The programmes are long-term, child-focused, sustainable, participatory and area-based.
Through the Area Rehabilitation Programmes (ARPs) in Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu (North), World Vision responds and provides assistance to the returned communities to build back their lives and livelihoods. There are also three projects that care for street children.
In 2015, World Vision served over 2,500 villages in more than 900 small administrative divisions in the 19 Districts, impacting the lives of over 270,000 children and their families.
