About The T.E.A Project

The TEA Project works to empower Sri Lankan children from poverty.


We provide training, support and guidance to schools, orphanages and grass roots organisations; working directly with marginalised, vulnerable children and young people from poor communities.


The project helps give young people a voice. A voice which develops ambition, skills, knowledge and opportunities for underprivileged children. Unlocking a child’s hidden potential.


Children need to feel valued as important individuals with active rights; principles that will help guide their future's.


Every child should grow respecting diversity and experience how helping others is a basic human right.


We believe passionately that developing skills, aspirations and confidence in young people is key to securing a positive and sustainable future for the next generation.


The TEA Project is based in Kandy, within the Central Highland Province. Like the unique Kandyan weather the ethnic and religious context is as strong and diverse with Sinhalese, Tamil, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim and Christian communities sharing the close proximity of the city. We support children from the poorest urban and rural areas throughout Sri Lanka where education and lives have been disrupted by poor economics, war, poverty, abuse and natural disaster.


The TEA Project donates its services nationally to assist organisations who give support to thousands of vulnerable children and families. Our tailor-made training is what makes The TEA Project unique; made to meet any learning objectives.

Please Help Christmas Happen

Racheal & Carl have spent the past 6 years building The T.E.A. Project
theteaproject.org
Training, Empowerment & Awareness (T.E.A.) is a programme of education & practical support designed to equip the most vulnerable children & poorest communities in Sri Lanka with the skills needed to lift themselves out of poverty. It has been an incredible success and all of that success has been
funded by public support. Something they are incredibly proud of.They have fought every day for the existence & growth of the project. There have been many challenges to overcome. From arriving in a foreign country with only a suitcase, public support and a vision; went on to register as a UK Charity in 2015 and this year were recognized as an International Non Government Organisation. Last January T.E.A. signed an agreement for an acre of land to build our first
Children’s Empowerment Centre; totally enabled again by public support. This month they also received confirmation of a donation that will allow them to complete The Centre build. The long term future of The Centre is now secured.
It’s an incredible achievement. Thank you to everyone who provided support.Our annual Christmas Appeal this year is for the funds we need to continue providing our programmes of support to children.
Please share our appeal with friends & family. All actions are of great value and hugely appreciated.
For every donation a brick will be placed into the walls of the centre with your name or a personal message.Thank you sincerely for your time, your constant support and our very best wishes. Carl Gale - CEO of The T.E.A. Project

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
