Promise to Amalia

What We Do

Promise to Amalia’s charity purpose is:

‘the relief of poverty and financial hardship in underprivileged children and families in Sri Lanka by providing support, goods and services that they could not otherwise afford through lack of means.’

Our projects primarily focus on education. We aim to give underprivileged children better access to educational resources and equal opportunities to gain an education. We feel developing their skills remains key to gaining qualifications, securing jobs and bettering their own lives.

Core Projects

We have 3 core projects at present and all students involved in these projects also benefit from confidence building workshops, please click on the links below for further details.

Lend a Hand Projects 


The knowledge that any child, anywhere in the world, should struggle without their basic needs to sustain life is heart-breaking. These projects aim to provide a more long-term solution to these problems, by helping parents improve their current household income. We hope this will give parents a better financial backing to respond to the basic needs of their children.

Previous Projects

Communal Educational Projects 2013 – 2015

When Promise to Amalia was first set up, we made contact with the Ihala Talduwa school in Sri Lanka, where approximately 40% of students were suffering financial hardship. Here we provided books, stationery, desks and improved sanitation, serving to enhance children’s learning environment. We subsequently visited many other schools providing support over this period, please click on the link above for further details.
