Access to quality education, health and nutrition for children and parents and members of large families living in two neighborhoods of Colombo
In the slums of the Sri Lankan capital, communities are affected by the proliferation of drug and alcohol consumption, prostitution and gambling addiction — children are the most vulnerable and exposed to these problems, while poverty is a limitation to the continuation in school. Keeping children away from addictions by avoiding dropping out of school and helping children and their parents by transmitting values and raising awareness and improving their health through nutritional programs, screening and promotion of healthy habits is the purpose of this intervention.
