The Manitha Neyam Trust commenced operations in 1999 to provide charitable and social services to the less privileged and is registered as an approved charity by the Ministry of Social Services in Sri Lanka. The trust has offices in the UK, USA, Australia and Canada.


Manitha Neyam Trust is not interested in getting mired in political debate; our actions and decisions are motivated purely and entirely by the needs of those in need.

Manitha Neyam Trust Manifesto

The three pillars that make up our Manifesto are informed by three social realities: the ongoing civil strife in Sri Lanka, the philanthropic environment and looming economic uncertainty. Drawing from each of those realities, we have identified our core DNA, the three things that every decision we make and every action we take.


At the heart of all our efforts is a deep respect, gratitude and admiration for our donors, in everything we do we will exercise active transparency and exhibit unequivocal honesty throughout.


We will maximize the impact of every iota of effort from our volunteers and every dollar from our donors; at every single juncture MNT will assess and reassess our process and progress to ensure that we are achieving the greatest impact.
