Our Story

The Sunshine Charity was founded in the aftermath of the December 2004 tsunami to take care of children affected by the devastation through the establishment of a day care centre in Sambalthivu, Trincomalee District, Eastern Province, Sri Lanka. Today, the 45 children attending the Sunshine Day Care Centre include orphaned and vulnerable children and those affected by poverty. With generous funding received from local philanthropists and international donors, the centre has provided the children with not only their basic needs like nutritional food and clothing but more importantly with creative opportunities, medical care and learning skills as well as educational tools. Through its programmes, the organization seeks to strengthen the capacity and improve the lives of the children served. The Sunshine Charity is a charitable, not-for-profit organization, registered in Sri Lanka by a Trust Deed and managed by five Trustees who are directly engaged with the children. They are supported in the overall management by The Grace Education Care Centre, Trincomalee.
