Salvage Sri Lanka.

Salvage Sri Lanka helps the underprivileged – women, people affected by HIV and ex addicts. They help by providing an avenue of making some extra cash and helping them get back on their feet. How? Salvage teaches these people to make really beautiful and arty jewelry and accessories.

Salvage is an airy and arty space located at Ward Place where they do all the creating and is the fundraising arm of Community Concern, the HIV Center and Heavana – the shelter for battered women. These people learn how to make these items and are paid for each item they make and then the items are sold and all the profits from all the sales go back to the projects. A worthy cause to get involved in don’t you think?

If you are looking for a way to connect with Salvage, they need stuff that’s just lying around in your home. Or are you a skilled craftsman or know someone whose good in carpentry and the such; skills go a long way at Salvage since everything that is made could be sold and that means money to help people who need to make ends meet.

The idea is to empower the people who visit Community Concern, HIV Drop Center and Haevana; and one such way they empower those who come to CC is by teaching them a skill. The women and men are taught how to make beads from paper and other raw materials out of which they create necklaces and other pieces of fashionable jewelry. You can also connect with them by giving them raw materials such as your old glam mags, bottle caps, paper in bulk, beads, usable leather etc. Old movie banners are sewn into fashionable clutch bags. Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; show him how to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime, is the principle behind teaching a skill.

You can purchase Salvage jewelry and accessories at their outlet at Ward Place, Selyn, Trunk, Secrets, Amangalle Resort, Arugambay Beach and SALT. When you buy yourself a necklace or a pair of earrings, you’re playing your part in giving back to the underprivileged whose very hands crafted these beautiful pieces. Think about that for awesomeness.
