    • Overview

      In 2017 SU Sri Lanka, with great pride, celebrated 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.
