PRITHIPURA

COMMUNITIES

BUILDING LIVES. BUILDING OPPORTUNITIES.

We provide a loving home across 4 locations in Sri Lanka to 250 people with disabilities in order to develop their abilities and independence.

What is Prithipura Communities? 

Prithipura Communities is a non-governmental, non-profit organisation. We provide a home to some of the most vulnerable in Sri Lanka; those with disabilities who have little or no family contact. We offer support regardless of ethnicity, religion or financial means. We currently support 250 children and adults with disabilities.

We believe in the intrinsic value of all humans regardless of disability and that people with disabilities should have equal access to a family life, education, work opportunities and community integration.  We believe that people with disabilities should also have the freedom to make independent choices and ultimately live a life free of stigma.

For our youngest residents and people with severe and profound disabilities.
