Stuart and I have just returned from another visit to Sri Lanka and India to check up on the progress of all our projects.
In India we were very pleased with the progress in completing our new home for our ‘STB Children’. The response to our appeal in April was wonderful. After 17 years of moving from rented house to rented house, it will be a bonus to have the
permanent home and more settling for the children.
In Sri Lanka we are launching our new ‘Buy a Gift for Christmas’’ project and happily report that there is now light at our little East Coast School of Aranculam. Our teachers have their bicycles and we have two new toilets being built.
A big thank you to all our kind supporters.
It’s been a busy few months since our last update, and we are thrilled at the progress that your generous support has enabled; you can read about developments in both India and Sri Lanka by down loading our new NEWSLETTER
- Electricity for a forgotten school
- Pawalam’s house now built
- Our new Chicken Farm project...
New Home for Indian Orphans
This project is moving quickly now, and, as you can see from the picture, is two thirds of the way there. You can imagine how excited the children are about their new home!
In order to complete this permanent home for our ‘Save the Babies” family, we need a further £10 000 and are launching a special appeal to this end. Excitingly, a generous supporter of Star Action has promised to match every pound donated for this appeal up to £5 000 so your generosity will be doubled!
It’s easy to donate – find out how here.

Dear Friends and Supporters of Star Action,
I am delighted to tell you that we have received wonderful support for our emergency appeals for our destitute war widow Pawalam in Mankerny, Eastern Sri Lanka.
Thanks to your generosity, we have been able to go straight ahead and built her little house. She is now safe and dry, with new clothes for herself and all the children (these made by our sewing machine lady Sutharsini). She is so very grateful to Star Action. Thank you.
We have also received further wonderful help for our ‘Build a Toilet’ project, and this means that we can go forward with the building of two more toilets.
Great appreciation to everyone.
Love and greeting from Jenny
During our recent time in Sri Lanka, August 2012, I spent as much time as I could meditating in the Little Temple for World Peace by the sea. Stuart joined me for sunset prayers and meditation. We both believe that there is increasing spiritual power in this Little Temple, which has been of significance in bringing about the current peace in Sri Lanka.Read More»
Two ladies, Selvarani and Thangalashami, both with four young children and husbands on very low labouring wages, have requested Star Actions’s help to buy water pumps to enable them to irrigate their small vegetable and fruit growing plots. We have received sponsorship already for Selvarani.
