Scripture Union Sri Lanka

In 2017 SU Sri Lanka, with great pride, will celebrate 50 years of ministry. Our mission to ‘Help children meet with Jesus’ comprises Scripture lessons for children aged 5-18 in 26 schools. SU Sri Lanka works closely with Churches to conduct Vacation Bible Studies. Four residential camps are also held annually for children from diverse ethnic religious and economic back-grounds. The partnership of SU Sri Lanka with Schools and Churches helps to foster interfaith communal harmony in a multi-ethnic and multi-religious country.

Sri Lanka is slowly recovering from the ravages of a brutal 30 year ethnic war. An outcome has been a significant section of youth physically, mentally and emotionally deprived of a stable childhood and adolescence. Apart from the formal educational sector, SU Sri Lanka has responded meaningfully to provide these deprived young people with a ray of hope through the assurances from the Word of God. SU does this by conducting programs for visually and hearing-impaired children, those abused due to broken families and for the orphaned and teenage girls saddled with unwanted pregnancies.

SU's resource base comprises three full-time workers and 40 volunteers who shoulder the responsibility of planting the Word of God in the lives of these deprived people.
