Sri Lankan Australian Youth Association
Vanakkam! Ayubowan! The Sri Lankan Australian Youth Association (SLAYA) is a student-run, not-for-profit organisation based in Perth, Western Australia.
Our organisation orchestrates a variety of social and sporting events each year in order to have an advantageous impact on the wider community as all the proceeds from our events benefit various charities in Australia and Sri Lanka. Consequently, this creates a platform for members to transition more easily into Australian society by developing support networks with each other.
We strive to make an impact within the wider community through sharing our time, skills and heritage. Our target audience is primarily youth with a passion for Sri Lankan culture and/or supporting charitable work. However, we welcome everyone to join us regardless of background as we embrace and celebrate all cultures to drive the notion of peace and unity under the one flag.
Since our inception, we have been fortunate enough to work alongside a vast array of charities by hosting events in order to assist them in reaching their goals.
In 2018 we supported the following charities: – Starlight Children’s Foundation (AUS): $500 – Headspace Armadale (AUS): $470 – YMCA YCounselling (AUS): $470 – Sevana Lama Nivasa (SL): $550
