Plan Sri Lanka

Plan has been working in Sri Lanka since 1981, on the invitation of the national government. We work with nearly 20,000 sponsored children and around 125,000 marginalized children in close to 270 rural communities across 7 districts.

Plan’s programmes are carried out through 4 Programme Units (PUs): the North Central PU in the rural, drought-affected, agrarian districts of Anuradhapura; the Central PU comprising Kandy, Matale and Nuwara Eliya; the Uva PU comprising the districts of Moneragala and Ampara in the Eastern Province; and the newly started Eastern Programme Office in Batticaloa district.

We work in partnership with local and national governments and civil society organisations to sustain improvements in children’s lives.
