About Us 

Welcome to USLA


We are here in Auckland to serve

our Sri Lankan community

 Our objectives:


1.    To promote goodwill and unity among all Sri Lankans.

2.    To uphold unequivocally and promote Sri Lanka as a single sovereign  state  in 

        which all people have equal  rights and can live in peace and harmony.

3.    To promote the interests and welfare of its members.

4.    To help members in their orientation to New Zealand way of life.

5.    To promote social, cultural and sporting activities among its members.

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.
