“That they may have life; life in its fullness.” (John: 10.10)
At present, there are about 60 students coming from all walks of life... Some students need to be sponsored. The staff are accompanied and given ongoing formation, on the job training locally and overseas.
It offers more opportunities for the mentally challenged to participate in many activities and skills. Dancing, singing and creation of works of art of various forms are daily activities at Day Mina. Trained teachers in special education, visiting experts and volunteers are part and parcel of the academic staff of Daya Mina.
Our Motto, “That they may have life; life in its fullness.” (Jn. 10.10) expresses the core values of the Centre. Each person is unique and valuable; therefore our aim is that all associated with Daya Mina may develop their full potential, both as carers, trainers and those who are guided and trained.
A Message from Sister AnastasiaDirectress - Daya Mina Centre
Thank you for visiting our website.
Our services for the differently able child and those with special needs in Sri Lanka started way back in 1964, in Gonapinuwela, off Hikkaduwa. The founder of our Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of Jesus and Mary saw this as one of the most important areas of service. Since then our involvement with the special child expanded to other areas, taking the form of house visiting, outreach programmes, vocational training, and parent counseling.
The child, youth and elder person within this spectrum receive from us the maximum and the most updated form of care, training and education as far as possible. Our belief in their potential, urges us to provide the best. Your concern and interest help us to carry out our programme to the best of our ability. Daya mina Day Center is situated in Embuldeniya in the Nugegoda area and is into its 32nd year looking to a bright future.
