We remember with nostalgia our humble beginning on 19th January 1990, in a rented house with hardly any facilities or conveniences, but loads of enthusiasm and a steadfast belief in our goals.

Dedunu was recognised for its services to the community by the Ministry of Social Services of the Government of Sri Lanka with the Registration No L27801, (under act No.31 of 1980 amended by act No.8 f 1998) on 11 July 2001.

Since then a great deal of “water has flowed down the river” and today, we are having a fully-fledged and fully equipped crèche, caring for infants and children from 03 months to 03 years and now a government approved charity.

It is a long and eventful 24+ years that we have now completed and our remembrances naturally tend to re-flow on the teething problems encountered during the first years of our Services to the poor.
