It all began under a mango tree…

In 1987 Kumarini Wickramasuriya founded a health centre and pre-school for disabled children with special needs. The pre-school met for the first time under a mango tree just a few kilometres north of Tangalla. From these humble beginnings Navajeevana has grown over 25 years to be the primary organisation working with people with disabilities in the Hambantota district of southern Sri Lanka

Kumarini’s vision to see the inclusion of people with disabilities in their local communities remains at the heart of our approach. Through a network of volunteers and highly trained staff we work in the community, supporting people with disabilities and working alongside them to help them achieve independence. We back this up with our first-rate therapy services at our centre in Tangalla and high-quality special education.‚Äč
