Child First (UK), a voluntary organisation that was established in 2008 and later registered as a charity in 2009. It's principle purpose is to serve the children of the North and East of Sri Lanka, who were affected by the civil war. With a vision of a better future for our younger generation, our charity embarked on a mission to provide a better education for the children of the North and East of Sri Lanka, with a view to create knowledgeable and talented future generations that will rise above the challenges of the tomorrow's world.
These were young children, still dependent on their parents and they had lost either one or both of their parents.
Believing that providing them an education would be a stepping stone for them to eventually immerse in society, we began to sponsor their educational needs by partnering up with Centre for Child Development, a charity that runs in Sri Lanka. CFCD monitors the progress of the students and personally makes effort into knowing the status of each child. This programme is called the "Student Support Programme" and you will be able to find more information on this project here.
Since then, we have expanded our assistance into various other projects, which all feed back to supporting these individuals to grow into independent individuals.
Please feel free to browse our website, we welcome all your kind thoughts into making our children prosper.
