A Differently Abled Dream
Develop basic needs for Special Needs children in vulnerable communities of Sri Lanka
A Differently Abled Dream is a project designed to provide the basic necessities, support and education for the special needs children in the most vulnerable communities of Sri Lanka.
LVAF is a social charity organization and we work completely voluntarily to provide the necessities for the special needs children in this community.
LVAF’s core value is to develop awareness among the parents of children with special needs and improve the quality of the child’s life in society.
LVAF aims to provide them with the basic necessities like nutritious food aid, healthcare, hygiene, and special education assistance (1st Phase).
LVAF aims to build up centers in such areas to assist the children with therapies and other activities to improve their speech, development, learning skills, and fine hand motor skills along with assisting the parent or caretakers with counseling interventions to improve their perceptions of the condition and developing coping strategies (2nd phase).
LVAF aims to empower the parents or family members economically for the improvement and sustainability of the family’s income and financial status(3rd Phase).

Phase One – Immediate Basic Needs (nutritious food aid, healthcare and hygiene requirements, and special education assistance).
Fundraising goal: $10,000
All donations through our first goal will address the necessities of the family who have a child with special needs.
Phase Two – Building up Centers with therapies and other interventions for special needs children and their parents for free of charge.
Fundraising goal: $15,000
Phase Two donations will be directed towards setting up centers in each area where such communities are in need. As a vulnerable community, the people are already facing economical and infrastructure issues, and are unable to spend on treatments, difficulties in accessing hospitals and community health centers, and also a lack of options are available out of their areas. Therefore LVAF has decided to provide the treatment and other services free of charge for them.
By providing such facilities in centers, it will enable those children to develop their basic life skills and identify their potential. Through this, the parents or guardians, and family members develop some awareness to cope with their child’s condition and improve their well-being.
Phase Three- Empower the parents or family members economically for the improvement and sustainability of the family’s income and financial status.
Fundraising goal: $25,000
By empowering the family, we are focusing on providing financial stability to begin their micro-businesses to increase the means of income for the family. This will lead to the sustainability of their financial status.
Updates on the projects will be posted on this page.
