Better Opportunities for Children

 

 

Better Opportunities for Children is a home in Ganemulla (near Gampaha), Sri Lanka, founded over 20 years ago by Fr. Flavian Wilathgamuwa, which has cared for over 60 children at a time. These children include orphans from the war-torn north. We have been able to support 12 children at the home . Again, all of their needs are met by the home, including food, clothing, shelter, education, and training in occupational skills for the future. This home provides shelter to children, irrespective of race, religion and other social differences. As an illustration, this home, founded by a Roman Catholic priest and continuing to be managed by a Catholic family, has two Buddhist Monks amongst its alumni.
