Physically, sexually or mentally experienced violence in Sri Lanka unfortunately has a high affected quota. The foundation intends to help people help themselves. Protective accommodation, stabilization, solid structures and everyday escorts help to catch the first traumatic experiences. By means of a realistic approach, a succession solution should be developed, so that self-determined life would be possible at a later point in time. The foundation is financed by private donations from our environment and a turnover share of 10% from the tourism projects.
Status November 2019
We have been living in Sri Lanka since January 2018. We were able to establish a foundation in Switzerland. Now the focus, after clarifying the local conditions and regulations, is on setting up the organization and setting up the women's shelter. In October 2019 we were able to sign the lease contract for the shelter. We are now intensively working on the implementation of the concepts and deal with the first cases that we are looking after. In many respects, the Foundation benefits from the know-how gained from the broad-based Advisory Board. The next steps are a smooth operation of the house and the launch of a fundraising campaign to secure the future of the project.
