16- year-old Vijay* lives with his single father and seven other siblings in the nation of Sri Lanka. When the lockdowns due to COVID-19 began in Sri Lanka, Vijay’s father struggled in his role as a single parent. But thanks to our partners, Vijay’s father was able to access the World Without Orphans’ parenting tips in his own language and see a drastic change in his relationship with his son.
After receiving the parenting tips from WWO, our partner in Sri Lanka set out to get the messages into as many homes as possible to support parents during the lockdowns. They understood that preventing violence against children is critical and even more so during the pandemic.
When Vijay’s father received the parenting tips and looked through the content, he only wished he’d known this information earlier! Weeks after he received the material, the staff of the Center of Hope contacted Vijay’s family and found a very different situation. The father was no longer criticizing his children and was instead noticeably more patient with them. He commented that he even found his children being more respectful and cooperative!
