Local partner

Life for all foundation (LFA) is a Sri Lankan association that has been implementing holistic development programs for several years for vulnerable populations in its country (communities in rural areas, war resettlement areas, urban slums, people with disabilities, etc.). LFA operates in various fields such as education, health and socio-economic development.



In March 2022, following the depletion of foreign currency reserves, the Sri Lankan government officially declared the country bankrupt. Indeed, Sri Lanka has faced shortages of essential supplies (fuel, gas, food), prolonged power cuts, closures (factories, businesses, schools and universities) and massive increases in unemployment. Faced with these difficulties, it is essential to provide emergency aid to this country concerning access to essential services and goods.

The mission

This project aims to improve access to care, sanitation, hygiene and employment for vulnerable people in the western province.


  • Build toilets, including toilets for people with disabilities.
  • Provide essential goods to people with disabilities to improve their living conditions (wheelchair, bed, mattress, etc.).
  • Organize first aid workshops and provide an adequate room dedicated to this use in schools.
  • Provide hygienic protection to schoolgirls to avoid school absenteeism during their periods.
  • Train women in income-generating activities and provide them with raw materials, equipment and machinery to enable them to be self-employed.
