Who We Are

About Us

The legacy left behind by Rosina Nanayakkara of loving and humble service to the poor, the needy and the voiceless inspired us, her immediate family, colleagues and close friends to continue Rosina Nanayakkara's vision and services. The Rosina Nanayakkara Charitable Trust Fund (RNTCF) was set up as the medium through which our work would be carried out.


The Trust was set up in Sri Lanka on December 29, 2011 under the provisions of the Trusts Ordinance No. 9 of 1917 for purposes which include the following:

Our Mission


Assist and empower the disadvantaged and the voiceless so that society recognizes and treats them with the love and respect they deserve. 


Rosina Nanayakkara’s love and care for others was universal. She did not discriminate by race, religion, or belief, and was respectful of all religions.  The Trust will continue this philosophy of serving all Sri Lankans that meet our mandate. 

Our Mandate

Rosina Nanayakkara dedicated all her mental, spiritual and physical resources to the service of those who needed them.  The impact she has had on all those around her prompted us to define our mandate to carry on to the best of our own ability the service she rendered to Sri Lankans in educating the young and being of service to others, especially to the voiceless.
