The Sambol Foundation promotes the protection of women and children affected by violence in Sri Lanka. Supervised accommodation and training should improve the living situation. Detailed information on the foundation's work here .
As a non-profit foundation, we cover the costs of building and operating the shelter with donations. With your donation you are helping to ensure that women affected by violence and their children have the opportunity to escape and help.

We are Devika (35), a trained graphic designer and former employee of the Girls' House in Zurich, and Luca (37), after studying Management & Economics, Head of Administration & Operations at FC Zurich.
In 2017, after a long period of planning, we decided to leave Zurich and quit our cherished jobs in order to further develop two long-term projects that have been close to our hearts. We moved to Sri Lanka, Devika's native land, with our daughter. The aim of our work is to make a contribution to sustainable tourism. This serves as the basis for the project carried out by the foundation, a shelter for women and children affected by violence.
We want to create beautiful places to relax. These should be ecologically, socially and culturally embedded and serve as a successor solution for the people in the shelter. The strengthening and promotion of mentally and / or physically weak women should also be implemented by working in tourism companies.
In the coming years we want to realistically drive project development with care and respect for the existing social structures.
