Welcome We know who holds the future …. After over 20 years at our home in Tangalle on the south coast of the island, it is time to move on with a different Business Model for the provision of care and support for children from very poor families. The model we have favoured is that of care and support for poor and vulnerable children in Foster Families. Staff in Sri Lanka will visit the families to offer support. Families will be referred to Still Waters by the Probation and Childcare Service, Schools and Churches. The children’s home, together with the land, will be sold and replaced with a small property to be used as an office and accomodation for some staff. During the coming year, it is our intention to continue the important work of supporting children but within a family setting. When a family has been identified to receive children, they will be eligible for a monthly grant to meet the expense of caring for a child. Still Waters staff will visit each family at least once a month to support and monitor the caring service. When fully operational this programme will care for forty children. Still Waters strives to offer practical and emotional support, giving significance to poor and vulnerable children. Helping them to learn and grow in an environment of love and acceptance. We are an inclusive organisation and our care and support is open to all regardless of class, caste or race. “We thank you for your prayers and generous support of the work of Still Waters and look forward to your continued partnership in the care of both children and families.”
