What we’re about

Asha Trust works in communities on the outskirts of Colombo in Sri Lanka. Housing and other facilities are poor in this area and finding work is a daily struggle. Many people earn less than $1 a day. These communities face multiple challenges and our community workers support them to develop solutions, restoring hope and building ladders out of poverty. Visit Projects to see details of the work we do and the difference our funding has made..

We always welcome new ideas and of course any donations you are able to make.
