The Mihindu Children’s Foundation produces the Tikiri Children’s Newspaper on a bimonthly basis, which is very popular amongst Sri Lankan children and the Sri Lankan community. It is freely distributed through the Buddhist temples, language schools, Sri Lankan shops, and community service organisations. Please contact us to receive a free subscription to the Tikiri Newspaper.

The foundation hosts a community-run television program on Melbourne’s channel 31. The main focus of the program, Pearl of Lanka, is to showcase the talents of the foundation’s children, and to encourage them to perform and increase their confidence. The program shares many aspects with Sri Lankan culture, including documentary series about Sri Lanka’s heritage and nature, and monthly children-run segments. Episodes of Pearl of Lanka can be viewed here.
