ABOUT US
About us

Our Vision

To provide a home for people with mental and physical disabilities.

Our Mission

To care for our residents in a community environment that enables residents to live life to the fullest.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

 to offer a home for the well-being and rehabilitation of the residents who need special care and attention due to mental, physical or other disabilities.

We encourage and support every resident to develop their own personalities, skills and talents. We value and believe in the facilitation of the above by the participatory activities of volunteers from the community who 

     work  with  us  from various different sources like schools, training institutions in higher education, companies and caring single individuals.

We invite you join in our mission!

Meet Gayan!

At age 7 his mother bought him to our home for behavioral issues and obesity.

At Prithipura, we were able to give him ample care and medical attention to help grow into the fine young man he is today.

It has been 14 years since he's been with us at Prithipura & he enjoys his time here thoroughly with his friends.
 


At Prithipura we have a variety of activities to keep our residents engaged and active.

Our Beginnings 

The Home was inaugurated in 1962 under the guidance and dedication of Bikkhu Sumana, it began as a boys’ home. There were three huts with cemented floors, wooden walls and thatched roofs accommodating four residents and a few house mothers to care for them. Today, we are grateful to have 62 residents who are housed in six cottages, within the premises. We strive to create an extended family environment for our residents to feel safe and loved.

Meet Danuja

Danuja was sent to us by the Balangoda Courts, at 11 years of age. He had acute leukaemia with involvement  of bones around his knees and feet. He recovered from the leukaemia after treatment at Apeksha Hospital, Maharagama. Then he was rehabilitated by Dr. Duminda Abeysinghe and his team at the Rehabilitation Centre, Ragama General Hospital for many months. There he had surgical repair as well as rehabilitation. He was fitted with expensive leather shoes with braces that made assisted walking with crutches possible. He attended further rehabilitation and psychological assessment at the Ayati Centre, Ragama. After rehabilitation he has been attending a nearby government school and he is scheduled to sit for his Ordinary Level Examination in December 2023. He is a talented artist and musician. His sketches adorn the walls of his room. We are very proud of him.

Danuja attends weekly Paralympic Rowing training conducted by the Paralympic Association and is progresing well.

SUPPORT A RESIDENT

Maintaining a resident costs over Rs.30,000 per month. This includes food, medical, resident's welfare and school fees. 

REPAIRS TO  OUR COTTAGES

We were fortunate to meet Mr Salman Eliyas who offered to upgrade our Cottages and to 

build a new cottage to house the female residents as the exisitng cottages were over crowded. The Activity Building was completely demolished and rebuilt to our specifications. Canada Cottage is renovated and the residents are in occupation. Rosy Cottage is being renovated now. Our grateful thanks to Mr Salman Eliyas.

 

 We now need to furnish the upgraded buildings and are trying to source our requirements. We will be using the generous donation we received from the Will of the late Mrs. Vera Fonseka of Melbourne arranged for us by her daughter Erena Fonseka.
