Our Structure

Suriya has an Executive Director working collaboratively with 17 Staff, 9 Coordinating Committee Members and 4 Advisory Board Members. Our committed Staff of women are the backbone of Suriya and their skills, creativity and care, offer continual support to all those who seek our assistance.

Over the years it is the women who directly benefited from our activities who have now taken key leadership positions within the organisation. Key coordinator positions  are held by women leaders from our village women’s groups. The legal work is now done by women who initially came to Suriya as survivors of violence. Similarly, women who were part of the village women’s cultural groups now create and lead the cultural activism of Suriya.

The Coordinating Committee are women from the district who are committed to promoting women’s progress and development in the District. They volunteer their time to meet with the Staff monthly to review programs, plan and guide decision making processes.

The Advisory Board is comprised of members who work for women’s rights in national and international forums and who meet each year with the Coordinating Committee and Staff at the Annual General Meeting.
