Thanks to our amazing supporters, Mukti Australia was able to work alongside our Indian partner Pandita Ramabai Mukti Mission, and our Sri Lankan partner Wings of Hope, to carry out some incredible development projects in 2018. Our projects focused on increasing our partners capacity to support and empower disadvantaged and vulnerable children and women, both now and well into the future. We’re so looking forward to another year of partnership with the amazing folks at Pandita Ramabai Mukti Mission in India and Wings of Hope in Sri Lanka. It is such a privilege to be part of this wonderful and life-changing ministry. All gifts $2 and over will receive a tax-deductible receipt.
Throw, catch, laugh, run, all while celebrating, a love for cricket and inspiring children to stay active and healthy!
We are collecting new and old cricket equipment to be distributed by our Sri Lankan grassroots partners “Wings of Hope” to equip the boys and girls participating in their projects in Colombo, and Hatton in the tea plantations.
The cricket equipment provided will help children learn new skills, enable them to play in a team, make new friendships, and have a greater sense of worth and belonging.
Mukti Australia and Wing of Hope longer term goal is to facilitate cricket lessons, coaching clinics, play matches and engage the children in Sri Lankan Cricket Clubs.
Poor living conditions can make life unhealthy and very difficult.
You can help a family in the tea plantations of Sri Lanka to have a healthier life through assisting with waterproof housing and sanitation facilities.
It is very difficult for girls and women in particular, to live in the tea pickers’ lines without a toilet. Wings of Hope are assisting by providing materials and training, enabling families to build their own toilet facility.
Some families also require assistance with repairs or rebuilding their tiny shacks to make them waterproof and prevent heavy rains washing through the dirt floors and destroying their few belongings.
Pandita Ramabai Mukti Mission’s land is a precious gift which is treasured for today and for the future.
To prevent the land being encroached by squatters, and to protect the animals and crops the boundary needs to be walled for security.
It is well underway, but there is still a long way to go. Every gift towards this wall takes it a little further along and protects this valuable asset.
Every day our wonderful House Mothers and their helpful carers look after the precious women and girls who live with a wide variety of special needs.
Cleaning and bathing take a lot of time and there is no running hot water meaning that each day bucket after bucket must be slowly and carefully heated.
There is so much sun in India that solar water heaters are the perfect answer!
Each gift will bring warmth, and improve not only the life of the House Mother but each of those in the Violet and Poinsettia homes.
Soothing aching muscles and improving health and hygiene- What a wonderful gift.
Every dollar you give will be so very much appreciated.
Homework is hard and if your family is illiterate, who is there to help?
Wings of Hope’s team of teachers work with the children encouraging, supporting and teaching a group each afternoon. The results in these children’s lives is amazing!
At present they meet in a repurposed cattle shed.
You can help build a community and education centre in the hills at Hatton so that this work can grow and flourish and impact more children with quality education.
Wings of Hope Lanka (WOH) is a non-profit organisation that empowers vulnerable women and children to develop an understanding of their own personal worth and realise the potential within themselves to live a purpose-filled life.
