VACD’s goal is to enrich the lives of children with disabilities in the poorest province of Sri Lanka; by easing their physical and intellectual impairments and providing them with skills to lead independent lives because of the severe shortage of proper infrastructure and support facilities for them in that region.
To help these children achieve these aspirations; we provide their parents with training and guidance to endure with the challenges of caring for these children to become valuable citizens and be accepted by their communities.
To accomplish this mission; we engage with local communities, religious groups, businesses, government and medical authorities and through discussion, awareness programs and workshops strive to eliminate poverty, ignorance, discrimination, social isolation, vilification, incest and sexual abuse etc. while promulgating and encouraging communities to value, uphold and respect the rights of children with disabilities.
