Debbie & Dilshan Edirisinghe

Debbie and Dilshan Edirisinghe live in Kandy are the founders of CAL back in September 2006. At the time, Debbie was working for a Canadian organisation when a lady asked the pair to consider taking over a very small centre outside Kandy where eight street children attended daily. Debbie and Dilshan decided to take on the challenge, moved it into the centre of Kandy city and, to their surprise, nearly 70 children turned up on the first day. Since then they have not looked back and CAL has not stopped growing. Both Debbie and Dilshan have studied abroad (UK, Australia & Canada between them) but are committed to seeing hope and a future come to the children of Sri Lanka.
