Who we are

Beginning in just one village and extending the movement to service a total of more than 15,000 villages over the past 50+ years, learn about our journey and where it has brought us today.

What we do

The Sarvodaya Shramadana Movement seeks a no-poverty, no-affluence society in Sri Lanka through community based efforts and volunteerism.

How you help

Whether you are a student intern, researcher, individual volunteer, or large group we are more than happy to invite you to help with our projects in Sri Lanka.

Our Mission

Create a no poverty, no affluence, and a conflict-free society.

Uplift and empower the most disadvantaged people in Sri Lanka.

Total Awakening and Well-being of All (individuals, family, village, nation, and the world) on every plane (spiritual, moral, cultural, social, economic and political).

How your donation is invested

Growth and development

Sarvodaya is striving to become financially self-sufficient but, like any NGO, we still rely on donations to support our work. Our ongoing projects across the country will benefit from your support.

Well trained workforce

Let Sarvodaya make your money work where it is needed most and leave a lasting legacy in Sri Lanka. Help create jobs, and ensure that we train specialists in their respective fields to further the Sarvodaya mission.

Emergency Relief

We do not wait for a disaster to happen to ask for help. Make sure that we are always ready to respond at times of need and help save lives.


“Sarvodaya means the Awakening of All – from an individual Human Personality to Humanity as a whole. This awakening has spiritual, moral, cultural, social, economic and political dimensions. Whatever we do in one of these sectors influences all other sectors.”

Dr. A. T. Ariyaratne – Founder
