Found in central Sri Lanka, Kandy is the capital city of Central Province. Sitting on the Mahaweli River it is one of the island's largest cities.
In contrast to its beautiful scenery, and impressive historical sites, Kandy is home to crippling poverty and violence is high. Despite being the economic centre of the tea-producing central highlands, a lot of families in Kandy can't provide for their children.
CAL believes that focusing our efforts on helping children is the starting point to break the poverty cycle. We do aim to work with the whole of the family whenever possible.
