CHILD VISION SRI LANKA is a non-governmental organisation, non-political, non-profit oriented voluntary national social services organisation based in Puttalam district; a registered NGO nationally (Ministry of Social Services and Social Welfare Colombo, registration ID L.33904). Child Vision was established in Puttalam in 1996 as a response to the many challenges that were being experienced by the Internally Displaced Peoples (IDPs) who were directly affected by the war in the North and the East of the country. The organization decided to focus on the children who were at risk of abuse and neglect due to their displacement. Child Vision became the first organisation in Puttalam to conduct awareness of child rights. Today, we base all of our activities on the rights of children. Child Vision is working in two specific programme areas: child protection & development and disability management and development. The organisation has developed many supportive partnerships including local government, local and international NGOs and members of the community. Child Vision’s head office is based in Puttalam Town and has an active Board of Directors comprised of individuals who exemplify our mission.
