How We Got Started
In the year 1983 a small group of Sri Lankans got together and established USLA with the aim of ‘portraying the true political situation in Sri Lanka and promoting the Sri Lankan culture in New Zealand’. At the time the organization did everything possible within its capacity to help Sri Lankans in our mother country, who were affected by the terrorism. USLA, Auckland Branch gained full legal status with the registration of our organization, on 26 Nov 1998, with the New Zealand Companies Office, under the title ‘United Sri Lanka Association (Auckland Branch) Incorporated’. USLA has been catering to our Sri Lankan community in numerous ways up to now and will continue to do so.
