• Opening of Sith Sevena Kitchen

We came to know of Sith Sevena through Project Manager Jaya who had volunteered at the centre and sat on its board for a while. 

Established in 1997 by a former Buddhist priest and his wife, the centre opened with 10 boys living in the couple's house.

By the time we first visited, the number had grown to 30 and the home was about to open a second building across the road to house 30 girls. 

However, what both lacked and we were able to provide were proper kitchen facilities.
