Child Action Lanka (CAL) is a part of a network of organisations working together towards protecting children in Sri Lanka.
Children from low income families are very vulnerable to harm from their immediate surroundings, their own family and neighbourhoods. According to the reports of the National Child Protection Authority, in 2020, almost 8165 child molestation cases were reported during the lockdown during the COVID pandemic.
It is why we emphasise the importance of child rights and protection. We ensure that all children in our centres are safe and protected from violence and discrimination.
Children are not only vulnerable to threats from outsiders but among those that live on the streets and in slum areas, the children are more vulnerable to the dangers from their own family members and surrounding neighbors. At CAL we work towards identifying children in such conditions and take action to bringing them to safety. Our safe houses therefore play a major role in bringing back safety and security in into their lives of these children.
