Sri Jinananda Children’s Home.

The Sri Jinananda Home located on Dharmarama Road, is home to sixty
underprivileged boys. Most of these boys have found their way here from broken
homes of single parent families who cannot afford to bring them up while others
are orphans. The home is just a long hall along the canal next to St Peters
College on the other side of the canal.

The hall acts as the area where the boys eat and play and
study. You probably pass by
this home every single day if you travel on Duplication Road to connect to
Galle Road. So that’s what they call home. Their daily routine is going to
school and after school classes. So they spend most of their lives in doors at
the home.

The SJDC is an initiative of Ven. Urumuththe Sugathananda Thero. The home
has been around since 1986 to provide a place for children from broken
homes. The boys who live at this home are
aged between 3 to 19 years and all of them are educated in schools close to the

The home is very basic and the caregivers
are very kind and caring towards the children.
A bunch of us went visiting a few months ago armed with
paint and brushes and a whole lot of other girls and boys. We painted and
played games to our hearts delight and the boys at the home loved

So do call the matron and book a date to
visit. The boys would really appreciate the company, or you could take the
whole bunch of them out on an excursion now that the school holidays are around
the corner or help them home with their groceries. Drop them a text or call the
numbers available on your top right-hand side.

This home could really do with some help.
“For it is in giving that we receive.” ― Francis of
