Sith Sewana  Residential home for Intellectually and physically handicapped children and differently  abled children  was the brain child of  Mr. Sarath Lanka Perera and founded on  on the 8th of may 1999. His ambition was to have a home in the salubrious settings  of  Tanamalwilla to develop the hidden potential of  the differently abled and to give them  a vocation suited to there  abilities. His  intention was to  guide and assist these  children and bring to their full potential.

After having an individual appropriate assessment our aim is to create the best opportunities for them to improve their quality of life to fulfill potentials minimizing the impact of disabilities.

Mr Sarath Lanka Perera is the Resident Director of this  home and has currently 70 children under his care helped by permanent  staff ,helpers, and well wishers who may be up to twenty on any one day.

It will be appreciated that a voluntary non profit organization such as Sith Sewana   with its main objective being to  develop the hidden potential of these children requires much planning, vision, and above all the necessary funds to be able to achieve its objectives.

Ninety five percent of the families  come from  low income group and,  Chena cultivation,  is the only source of livelihood for the families.

The Sith Sewana  children development society  functions irrespective of  caste ,creed, race, religion, rich or poor and the doors of the entrance is open to anyone any time of the day or night.
 
A society in which all persons with ‘special needs’ can enjoy their rights and receive the opportunity to fulfill their potentials.
 
To enable persons with ‘special needs’ to improve their quality of life and to campaign for the removal of barriers which hinder the achievement of their full potential
