Sanctuary is our boys home, it was opened in 2003, two years after our girls home (Salem Villa). The home has much the same history as Salem Villa and is run in much the same way, however it is located slightly further out of Colombo.
The boys are typical boys! They love sports of any description (especially cricket) and would love to spend all their time on the computer if they were given the chance. The new manager of the home has really taken the boys personal development on board; he has started to teach them to play musical instruments and, being a keen gardener himself, is cultivating the one acre plot of land around the home. They have already had their first crop of vegetables and the gardens always seem to be in bloom!
Many of the older boys who have now moved into full time work still spend time with the children; they see themselves as one big family and go out of their way to help each other.
