About Us



Our Story

The wonderful depth and culture of Sri Lanka risks quickly becoming lost. As cities become rapidly developed, the rural children are being left behind. A vast majority of the poor live in these rural areas and have limited access to education and healthcare. 

But it’s not too late. By injecting struggling communities with funding for schools, home improvements, and assistance during times of greatest need, we can reignite the magic of this land and it’s people. That’s why we created Diriya Sahana.

Because we need you.
