Giving A Future to 100 Abused Girls in Sri Lanka

by Their Future Today


TFT is giving a voice to institutionalised children who survive alone and afraid and are denied access to their basic human rights of love and education. This institution houses 100 young girls from 10 years old, some who are mothers, have suffered rape, abuse, and rejection from their families. They are locked up for punishment and protection and released at 18 years old with little or no education or self worth. This project creates the gift of life skills and qualifications to build a future.

These institutionalised girls, are separated from their babies, deprived of education, privacy and freedom. When they reach 18 years old they are released into the outside world without life skills, and often resort to prostitution, crime and suicide. Their babies also become institutionalised and are denied their basic needs of love, education and identity which creates a perpetual cycle of poverty resulting in further child abandonment.


Their Future Today will build a classroom and library to enable education and vocational training for 100 abused girls, to include sewing, computing, and English lessons. Art therapy classes will facilitate self expression, build self esteem, confidence and emotional support. This will improve their skills to find employment in the community, the chance to be reunited with their babies and remove them from damaging institutionalised care.

Long-Term Impact

This project will greatly empower 100 girls to reach their full potential, lift them out of poverty to support their own families, reduce child abandonment and become better functioning members of society. TFT works alongside the government to raise standards of care in institutions, provides education and vocational training, reunites families, prevents abandonment in the community and advocates for supporting families first to end the institutionalisation of over 21,000 affected children.
