If we are patient to persevere, God is kind to let us see the fruit of our labour. This was made abundantly clear to us in our years of service in looking after displaced children at the hostel of St John’s College.
I would like to thank and praise God for his grace and his hand in all that we do. I am particularly glad for the opportunity to be a part of NPEVAC (National Partnership to End Violence Against Children in Sri Lanka).
I would like to thank and praise God for his grace and his hand in all that we do. In partnership with one of our main donors, we had to organise and train volunteers who could go and collect facts about children living in CDC’s (Child Development Centres) all throughout the island.
This is a case that I followed closely and was amazed by God’s work in the child’s life. In order for us to trace the child’s biological mother our follow-up officers had to walk miles and climb a hill as there was no proper path for vehicles to travel in the village. The child’s story is told here in her point of view. As an organization we continue our follow-up on the child.

Sanjay was referred to ESCAPE at the age of 16 through the legal system. He was at one of the remand homes before he was referred to ESCAPE. Sanjay received residential counselling at our respite home. During his stay with us he learnt to manage his anger and also to work as a team. We noticed good leadership qualities in him.
