Who we are

We are a social enterprise initiated by the Women’s Development Centre, geared towards economically empowering women and persons with disabilities in Sri Lanka. By intervening through creative, innovative, and effective change initiatives, WDC strives to encourage self-reliance and promote equal opportunities for at-risk and vulnerable women and persons with disabilities. At our store, we not only sell beautifully handcrafted products but also create a support system for our entrepreneurs so that they are able to run their businesses sustainably.

WHAT WE DO

Sthree comes under the Community Development program of WDC that focusses on implementing a comprehensive economic empowerment program for women through building knowledge on savings and credit, livelihood skills development and entrepreneurship skills development in order to expand women led businesses and provide a market place to sell high quality, eco-friendly products.

Our products are handmade locally by a network of close to 200 artisans consisting of women and persons with disability in Sri Lanka.

Sthree partnered with Planeterra and G-Adventures in 2018 to create a traditional café in the heart of Kandy that serves traditional Sri Lankan food prepared by local women.
