New project

PEaCE, Sri Lanka

The Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation has a new project on the go in Sri Lanka – it is now supporting the PEaCE Project.

Poverty and social inequality leave their traces even in the paradise where our green and black teas are grown. One of the worst consequences is the sexual exploitation of children. In recent years, more and more children from the tea plantations of Sri Lanka have been lured into the city. Instead of the chances they are promised, they find prostitution, pornography and sex trafficking. This is why Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation is now supporting the "Protecting Environment and Children Everywhere” initiative (PEaCE). The initiative, started in 1991, fights for children’s rights and against child sexual exploitation. Their goals are immediate protection, better legal regulations and awareness amongst society and tourists. We visited PEaCE in the winter of 2015 and saw at first hand the amazing work they do. We are delighted that Lemonaid and ChariTea can support them.
