Despite Sri Lanka being a higher middle-income country, nearly 80% of all Sri Lankans live in rural communities. These rural communities face a hard climb out of a vicious cycle of poverty that prevails through generations. The MCC Centre of Excellence represents change. It aims to bridge the gap in opportunities that often separates rural Sri Lankans from the rest of the country. It offers a variety of courses which are provided free of charge to those in need and have been able to reach out to thousands of beneficiaries from villages all over Sri Lanka.

I had no skills. My future was uncertain and I felt that the world was very unfair to me. I had no means of making a living until I learned new skills from the Women’s Enterprise Centre. Now I am capable of earning a living for the rest of my life
After A/Levels I had no real options but one of my friends gave me information about FoG and I followed the Programming and Web Design courses at their IT Centre. Now I am a senior QAT for Trax Smart Recognition Retail System. FoG led me to the best opportunity I ever had in my life, the people at FoG did not let me down.
I lost three of my sisters and my nephew on the day of the tsunami. I was afraid of the ocean after that but wanted to overcome it and learn to dive. Because of the skills I gained at the FoG Diving & Training Centre I am now a skilled diver working in Dubai as a lifeguard.
I mortgaged my house to go overseas for employment and lost it. Now my family lives with my Uncle and if not for FoG I would not be able to provide for them. I am earning a salary today because of the NVQ 4 Certificate level training I received at the Electrical Installation Course.
