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.

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

Tissa Jinasena Group (TJG):  JET - JITI - JIP - JTRT - JTF - SELF - VEDAWATTA - TJF 



To teach people that we have evolved with nature, we are what our ancestors ate and experienced, this is in our DNA and our guts, by now eating completely different kinds of food including highly processed food with many synthetic additives, GMO food and agrochemical residues we are introducing to our systems many chemical and biological compounds that it cannot digest or absorb, throwing the biome into unbalance, with it chronic disease such as Cancer, Alzheimers Disease, Diabetes, Hypertension, Depression. By eating natural food we reestablish equilibrium within our systems and with it good health, vitality and long life.

To teach people that many of the modern drugs including antibiotics, steroids and hormone treatments destroys our biome and with it our long term health, they only mask the symptoms. That they should only be used as a last resort, that natural cures are much more effective long term. By learning to balance our biome we learn to eradicate many of the diseases that now reaching epidemic proportions.

To bring to the notice of people the modern studies and findings highlighting the efficacy of traditional ways of living including Yoga, Meditation, group social activities in creating happy lives. To walk in nature, to admire a sunset, to help other beings, to demonstrate loving kindness stimulates our hormones giving us the feeling of well being naturally without resorting to artificial stimuli such as alcohol, drugs, sugar which shut down the hormone receptors causing insensitive to these stimuli and the need to take larger and larger intakes and eventually to addiction.

To convince people that the energy they produce and give others comes back to them, that is the nature of the Universe, Thoughts are the forerunner of all actions, kind, considerate, loving thoughts gives one a life full of these attributes. Our minds create good health and wellbeing, on the positive side and disease and unhappiness on the negative side.

That by triggering the fight or flee response frequently in our lives we are releasing hormones such as Cortisol that serve a vital function in a life threatening situation but are harmful in everyday life as the immune system and other critical life support systems get switched off. We teach people to lead peaceful relaxed lives by teaching them to understand what is triggering them and how to overcome these triggers.

MOU Vision

Raise the Consciousness Level of people so that we create a happy, safe and sustainable World. To transform their unrelenting drive to satisfy the senses and accumulate worldly goods, that is causing so much suffering, into one of creating a just and happy world.

MOU Mission

Mankind developed in nature, was weaned in nature and is an intrinsic part of nature. Modern man is now trying to move away from nature, to exploit it and destroy it. This has brought about so much suffering and hardship as we move away from the the concept of one, both physically and psychologically. Plant life is the foundation of all life on earth, we need to reestablish our intimate connection with nature and plant life or we risk destruction through diseases and pestilence.
MOU Is dedicated to creating within people the love for nature and teaching them how to use the boundless gifts of nature to live a happy and sustainable life. The appreciation of the oneness of all phenomena in the Universe and the joy of living without discrimination and separation.

Herb gardens and indigenous medicinal plants conservation

Over reliance on prescription drugs and supplements is having a disastrous effect on the health of people, the time tested traditional cures and herbal remedies are now making a comeback. The problem faced by people is the difficulty in obtaining these herbs and knowledge about how to use them. We grow herbs in two herbal gardens and freely distribute herbs to patients. School children, practitioners & students of traditional medicine engage in field visits to familiarize themselves with the rare plants found in these gardens. We also publish and distribute books that describe medicinal herbs and their use in curing many common diseases. Vedawatte Company operates a fifty acre estate in Belihuloya, Sri Lanka promoting the growth of Herbal forests. The long term objective of the organization is to donate this Herbal forest back to the society with a mechanism that schools and universities in the area will protect and manage the Herbal forests which are disappearing fast in the current context
