its us together
AMMA exists today because a number of incredible humans give money, commitment and support to see it have its chance. AMMA is the result of good people around the world who believed in our vision.
Therefore, we have lots of friends & partners - we have listed organisations and trusts that may be of interest to you, along with our wonderful 'food waste' suppliers, who locally donate the skins & stones of fruits that we can use for dyeing.
Child Action Lanka works to transform the lives of disadvantaged children across Sri Lanka. AMMA is an income generating enterprise overseen by CAL. AMMA works closely with CAL's Nuwara Eliya pre-school to employ and train mothers from the tea estate communities.
Epiphany Trust is a UK based organisation who has supported work in Sri Lanka since 2000. Primarily working with Child Action Lanka they have helped launch projects across the island to help the poorest and most disadvantaged communities.

food waste suppliers
Cafe Kumbuk is based in Colombo where they have two outlets - 60 Horton Place & at the Good Market Shop. They make beautiful fresh, seasonal food that is locally sourced. They also get through almost 300 avocados a week - instead of throwing the stones away they have committed to donating them to AMMA so we can create our pink & lilac dyes! Thanks Kumbuk!
The Grand Hotel is a 5 star residence based in the centre of Nuwara Eliya. Built in 1891 it is a colonial landmark in the hill country. We collect onion skins, tea waste and avocado stones from the hotels kitchens, contributing to a large percentage of all food waste we collect for dyeing.
August Cafe by Mama Aida's is a restaurant in Colombo focusing on fusion middle eastern cuisine. They kindly provide us with pomegranate skins from their kitchen.
