Tissa Jinasena Foundation 



TJF is the personal charity management agency of Dr Tissa Jinasena. TJF objective is to save lives, alleviate suffering, & maintain human dignity. It works towards creating societies where disadvantaged members are empowered to become self-reliant & thereby contribute towards the creation of a better world.







Solar Lamp Distribution:

TJF distribute solar lights especially designed for school children of remote villages with no electricity. The traditional kerosene lamp is considered hazardous & has caused numerous accidents causing serious damage to the lives of rural children.




 Street children’s home – Hulftsdorp:

TJF focus on street children with a sincere concern as they do not receive regular meals or formal education. They are exploited by the underworld & are often dragged into drug peddling & other anti social activities.  



Assistance to the needy people – Moratuwa:

The urban poor struggle to make a living, living mostly in illegal shanties or on the pavement. This initiative gives a monthly payment to more than 100 people, the poorest of poor whilst providing books and other requisites for the children & clothing for the families. 



 Children's Home - Sri Jayewardenepura

This was started to look after war orphans now is a safe home for nearly 100 children sent by the legal system. The court takes custody of children when it decides that the parents cannot effectively look after these children and also children who have been subject to sexual harassment. 




Elders home - Dambulla

This project provides assistance to 80 inmates.




School childrens health (Gurukumbura Vidyalaya):

This project provides milk in the morning to school School childrens health (Gurukumbura Vidyalaya): This project provides milk in the morning to school children of the indigenous people living in Dambana which is a reserve for this traditional hunting community. They are now cut away from their traditional hunting grounds and now forced to live a life of poverty. The children are malnourished and the glass of milk is the main motive to get them to come to school.




Assistance to Galnewa Wedamadura:

Is a free hospital that treats over 200 residential patients and over 1000 out patients monthly. Payment is purely voluntary and depends on the economic status of the patient. The shortage of pure water was a big constraint, we constructed a tube well and complete water supply system for this hospital. 




Assistance to Deaf and Blind School at Anuradhapura

Provide support to the visually and aurally handicapped children from the rural communities. 




Spiritual development is essential for a well-balanced society; we provide training facilities as well as infrastructure facilities for religious organizations so that they can better serve society
