Ayati Centre

Ayati is a unique collaborative partnership of the Public and the Private Sector. It is a testimony to a successful venture when planned effectively. Ayati Center is managed by the Ayati Trust. Medical and technical expertise are provided by the Faculty of Medicine, University of Kelaniya and the Ministry of Health. The centre aims to support children with disabilities to forge ahead.

The Private sector, namely Hemas Holdings and MAS Holdings with other participants such as Roshan Wijerama Foundation, funded the construction of the center tailor made to suit the needs of the future activities lined up. Kumar Sangakkara and Roshan Mahanama are trustees facilitating the fund raising activity. The Sri Lanka Army shouldered the construction and were able to complete the project in record timing.
