Sri Lanka

CARE Sri Lanka was established in 1950 with a focus on food security and maternal and child health. Today, we work to address the root causes of poverty and marginalization of vulnerable groups by building the skills of communities and promoting good governance within both government and community organizations.

CARE Sri Lanka focuses on three main target groups in specific geographic areas:

  • poor rural communities in the dry zone
  • conflict-affected populations in the north and east
  • plantation residents

Following the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, CARE expanded its work to support tsunami survivors in seven of the worst-affected districts. CARE Sri Lanka’s strategic plan focuses on:

  • Peacebuilding
  • Governance
  • sustainable livelihoods
  • gender equity
  • emergency preparedness
  • disaster risk reduction
