Akkarayan is an outreach project from our Kilinochchi center. Low income families struggle against poverty after losses in the war. They now face new threats of prostitution in desperation to pay back loan sharks.

It started with a handful of children in a church hall that has grown to give this emerging community hope. CAL's after school classes give parents hope to see their children get an education. An education can save children from pursuing unsafe labour in cities in Sri Lanka and the Middle East. The Akkarayan centre now helps more than 100 children.
