About Us

The Rosie May Foundation was set up in memory of ten year old Rosie May, who was murdered at a Christmas Party. The next year, went away for Christmas and witnessed the tsunami first hand.

The Rosie May Home is the main project a unique and exciting concept, small and family orientated where sisters age 3 to 18 years are reunited and cared for by live-in house parents. This tranquil 3-acre site provides a safe and loving home for orphaned and abandoned girls and aims to empower them to strive for a brighter and more equable future.

Our overseas volunteer programme simultaneously aims to give the children the opportunity to develop their English language skills and the volunteers an enriching and challenging experience both at the Rosie May Home and at our community projects in Sri Lanka.

We are a small charity and promote ethical volunteering - we are not a voluntourism company! We meet each volunteer and assess their skills and needs to the best placements possible at the Rosie May Home, and in the communities we support.
