Courage makes changes and it is time for Sri Lanka’s people to change the course of their future.

Savi Jaya Development Foundation is a local help organisation based in Weligama. It was established in 2010 to under the leadership of Janaka Loronso Hewa, a young man from Weligama dedicated to his people, who decided to help in a different way.

We believe in humanity, solidarity, community. Our main focus is on supporting children and young adults in their education and support the poorest families of the community in times of crisis. We believe that if somebody is hungry, don't give him/her a fish. Give them a fishing rod and show them how to catch fish. That’s why we believe that helping local children to receive an education is the only way to a brighter future for the country. The main idea of the founder of the organization, is to create a community and bring every member to help himself in order to help others.

Current projects

School Supply

On 16th February and 1st March 2022 Savijaya organised two donation events for the local children of the Weligama area. Thanks to fundraising and the help of local partners with each event more than 100 children from underprivileged families could be reached. The donation packages included school books, notebooks, pencils, school bags and refillable water bottles.

Perspective: In December 2022 before the start of the new school year, our goal is to provide at least 1000 children with packages like this. Calculating with actual prices with an input of only about 10$ it is possible to buy a package for one child

Help in times of crisis - Food donations:

Unfortunately, as the economical crisis in Sri Lanka is getting worse and worse, even the most basic goods such as rice and lentils get unaffordable for many people in Weligama area. While in January 2022 the cost for one kilo of rice was around 90 LKR it has now risen to 220 LKR. Due to limited availability of this imported product in Sri Lanka, one can already see the shortage of this essential nutrition in many areas. Therefore Savijaya will help provide the poorest people with food packages within the next weeks. We were already able to raise enough support for 150 people, but as the situation does not seem to improve any time soon, this will be an ongoing challenge for us in the upcoming months.

More than ever, the Sri Lankan people need your help.

That's why our foundation is calling for donations: All donations will be used to buy food, fuel, school supplies (exercise books, pencil cases, school bags, shoes and uniforms), for the Sri Lankan people.
