Charitha is a young man with a moderate intellectual disability which is overcome by his extraordinary personal charm.

He graduated from Plumtree preschool (back then known as Pathways) many moons ago.
Around the time Cha graduated from high school, he and Mary (his mum) set up the Rainbow Bridge Social Club for young LGBTIQ+ people. A safe social space for the LGBTIQ+ community with intellectual disabilities. Since school, he has engaged with the Disability Employment Scheme with a few working experiences under his wing.
Charita has attended classes in early childhood health and care at Sydney University under the Uni2Beyond programme, which gives young people with intellectual disabilities a taste of university life.

He loves working at Plumtree Preschool, and the children enjoy his company too.
