Children and Youth Development Association
(CYDA Sri Lanka)


            The Children and Youth Development Association has been formed to uplift the standard of children and youth covering the Southern Province with Galle district and Matara district as the centers.
This association commenced with the commuĂ­l efforts of youth in the Galle district at the 2004 Tsunami coatastrophe.
            As youngsters we have practically experienced the problems of school going and non attending children. Consequently it has paved the way to the formation of a progressing organization. Now we have a dedicated board of directors to fulfill the aims of our association. The cooperation of donors is thus anticipated as we do not have sufficient monetary and infrastructure facilities.

Thank You.
