ChildFund New Zealand in Sri Lanka

ChildFund works in Batticaloa in eastern Sri Lanka, an area that is still recovering from the 25-year-long civil war which ended in 2009.

ChildFund provides women with training and small loans to generate income for their families, and educates parents about good nutrition and health.

We work with schools to raise the level of teaching in the classroom so that students are more engaged and get better grades. And when flooding hits this lagoon-based community, we pitch in to help people get back to their everyday lives and livelihoods.
