Environment & Water Sustainability
It is beyond doubt that there is an urgent call worldwide for action against climate change and towards environmental sustainability. More than 1 million species face the risk of extinction and the worst impacts of climate change could be irreversible by 2030.
We have pledged to strive towards environmental and water sustainability. We strongly believe that the sustainability of the rural environment is fundamental to the development of the village as part of a global community. The sustainable development of rural communities is at the heart of our unique rural development model.
Our many environmental activities include community and beach cleanups to reduce plastic, garbage and pollution, tree planting programmes, recycling drives, awareness programmes and ocean care initiatives to remove pollutants from the ocean as well as to help restore our depleted coral reefs.

THE GOODNESS AGRICULTURE INITIATIVE
Education and awareness is one of the main forms of action towards environmental sustainability. The Goodness Agriculture initiative aims to educate the students of FoG to become future world leaders in sustainability and champions of nature, who actively participate in protecting the Environment.
Environmental awareness is paramount in today’s world, with climate change and ever increasing pollution levels. Launched in June 2020, the Goodness Agriculture Initiative is currently underway at all our Village Heartbeat Empowerment Centres (VHE) island wide. It teaches our beneficiaries the intricacies of agriculture, gardening and much more!
Sri Lanka being a predominantly agriculture based economy highlights the importance of knowing the key challenges of agriculture, the best solutions and which plants are best suited for the climate in each area. Our beneficiaries get to go out to the home gardens at our Centres and have a hands on experience in gardening and planting!
