About our activity
Vithu Trust Fund is a charity organisation dedicated to improve and safeguard the lives of children in Sri Lanka and raises voice for the needy.
There are thousands of children who go through the day without a single nourishing meal. They include victims of war, which has thrown the bread-winners of these families out of work and the future of our youngsters into darkness.
Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it and live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success. - Swami Vivekananda
The work philosophy of Vithu Trust Fund is inspired by the famous quote of Swami Vivekananda. Our team believes in Think, plan, action & achieve!

We run several projects to make a difference to the lives of both children and adult. The combined objective of all these projects is to contribute towards the economic sustainability of these innocent victims of the civil conflict through community participation. Each project aims to provide a progressive path for vulnerable belonging to a specific age group, and possessing different ability levels.
We have further broken down the projects into measurable units according to the target objective, and the funding required for achieving the specific objective. The categorization of projects have made it easier for our team to implement and monitor the projects based on the allocated funds and planned timeline.
Our project are categorised in to six groups
Take a look at
Raj-Vithuran, the founder of Vithu Trust Fund started his journey by investing his time and effort to identify the needs of people whose lives have been devastated by the civil conflict in Sri Lanka that lasts over three decades. He was passionate about helping the innocent people to bring their lives on track. After working closely with local communities in the rehabilitation work he realized that the redevelopment and resettlement work can be streamlined more efficiently under a legal framework of a social enterprise. His commitment and determination to streamline the redevelopment and resettlement work encouraged Vithu to start the Vithu Trust Fund in December 2004.
During his association with the local communities, Vithu observed how the long and bloody conflict has compelled many people to live in pain, anguish and uncertainty. The irrevocable loss caused to them clearly reflected in their sad eyes. No one can compensate the huge loss caused by thousands of innocent victims of the Sri Lankan conflict. So Vithu decided to launch many projects that will surely put a smile on the faces of innocent children and adults.
At present, Vithu Trust Fund supports several developmental projects that aim to provide housing, education and care to the innocent victims of Sri Lankan conflict. Within last eight years, these projects have brought a positive change in the lives of thousands of vulnerable people. The support received from our well-wishers and kind hearted donors have provided us momentum to carry out the development work more efficiently and rapidly.
Vithu Trust Fund regularly collects donations and initiates fundraising activities to fund the redevelopment and resettlement project. Vithu always welcome the support and assistance received from well-wishers, enterprises and organizations across the world to carry on the rehabilitation programs.
The donations received from various sources are used completely to help the poor, homeless and physically children and their families in Sri Lanka. While donating funds, one must feel that he is contributing towards changing the lives of innocent victims of the vicious civil war. We need funds to carry on the programs to bring lives of thousand people on track regardless of their caste, creed and sect.
