As a charitable foundation we cover the costs for the construction and operation of the shelter with donations. With your donation you contribute to the fact that women affected by violence with their children have the possibility to escape and help.

We are Devika (33), a trained graphic designer and former employee of the girls shelter in Zurich, and Luca (35), after studying in Management & Economics, head of administration of FC Zurich.
In 2017, after much planning, we decided to abandon our tents in Zurich and cancel our esteemed jobs in order to develop two long-standing projects of the heart. Together with our daughter we moved to Sri Lanka, Devika's country of birth. The aim of our work is to contribute to sustainable tourism. This serves as the basis for the project supported by the foundation, a shelter for women and children affected by violence.
We want to create beautiful places for recreation. These should be ecologically, socially and culturally embedded and serve as a successor solution for the people of the shelter. The strengthening and promotion of mentally / physically weak women and children should also be implemented through cooperation in tourism businesses.
In the years to come, we want to realistically drive project development through our work, with care for social structures and respect for all circumstances.
