A holistic rural development model that seeks to bridge the gap between the urban and rural communities in Sri Lanka via 10 empowerment divisions across 900+ villages island-wide reaching over 68,000+ beneficiaries annually, free of cost.
Sri Lanka is currently battling a crippling economic crisis which has caused food prices to soar to unaffordable levels to thousands of people. Many in rural Sri Lanka have had to compromise on meals as they are unable to afford the same amount of food. The Foundation of Goodness has therefore begun a Food Security Project via our Centres located island- wide.
50 families in the rural locality of 8 Village Heartbeat Empowerment Centres (shown below) were provided with seeds and tree saplings to begin home gardens. These seeds will provide a harvest of up to 100Kg of vegetables in just 4 months, providing essential food items to these rural communities.
A special thank you to Dr. Arul Bala for supporting this crucial and timely project, to mitigate the the detrimental effects of the food crisis here in Sri Lanka.
