We want children to grow up loved, free and with the option of a better future. Reality is that children are rejected and abandoned. Most rejected and abandoned children are pregnant teen girls and shame doesn’t care how they got pregnant.
Because of that, we stand for improving the position of unwed pregnant women and single mothers in Sri Lanka.
What do we do
We offer shelter, inform, educate and coach rejected and abandoned girls. We teach them how to take care of themselves and their babies.
We make sure that suicide is not an option and children are safe.
Why we do it
Rejection and abandonment are what makes 4000 girls commit suicide and orphans 16000 babies each year.
We do this because we believe that we are called for it because this is how we pass on the love of God and because in John 13:34 Jesus says: “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.”
Why we need your help
Because education, shelter, care for children, everything around it and telling you what we do, costs money.
We ask for your help because we can’t do this alone. We want to help more children so they can change the future.
By donating €25 a month to ‘project 13:34’ you give life to a rejected and abandoned child including the next generation.
The Yworks foundation is an ANBI and get’s the job done with unpaid board members, advisors and supporters. Your donation can be tax deductible (in the Netherlands).
We’re very grateful for your support!
