Vanakkam! Ayubowan! The Sri Lankan Australian Youth Association (SLAYA) was established in 2011 and is a student-run, not-for-profit organisation based in Perth, Western Australia. Our organisation orchestrates a variety of social and sporting events each year in order to have an advantageous impact on the wider community as all the proceeds from our events benefit various charities in Australia and Sri Lanka. Successively, this creates a platform for members to transition more easily into Australian society by developing support networks with each other. Although our target audience is Australian students of Sri Lankan ethnicity, we strive to make an impact with the wider community through sharing our time, skills and heritage.
