Shining Life 20th anniversary logo

Shining Life Children’s Trust works to improve the lives of disadvantaged children in Sri Lanka. Our focus is on the family. Through working with families and the communities in which they live we aim to build a sustainable and brighter future for the children.

We believe that real and sustainable development is a process in which people change their own lives by their own efforts. To achieve this we work in partnership with local Sri Lankan organisations, supporting communities that aren’t getting enough support and working in ways that larger charities can’t.

Shining Life Children’s Trust is staffed entirely by volunteers ensuring that over 98% of your donation goes directly to our work in Sri Lanka.
