The Foundation of Goodness is a holistic rural development model that seeks to bridge the urban-rural divide in Sri Lanka via 10 empowerment divisions across 900+ villages island-wide, and reached over 307,000+ beneficiaries in 2022 alone by way of 15 Empowerment Centres, free of cost.
As schools and education centres remain closed all across Sri Lanka due to the spread of COVID-19, most lessons have moved online, and this has proved an immense challenge to many students in rural Sri Lanka.
The glaring disparity between urban and rural Sri Lanka is only becoming deeper. In an effort to bridge this gap, the Foundation of Goodness has begun an appeal for donations to provide data cards for these rural students.
The Foundation of Goodness is happy to announce that kind contributions by international and local donors, have made it possible for us to reach and surpass our target!
Seeing the many difficulties that rural Sri Lankan students face in accessing and paying for their online education, we set out to provide 3000 rural students with mobile data packages for the month and we are happy to have surpassed our target, with over 1049 rural students connected between 8th-13th August.
As education is the best chance that many of these children have in escaping a life mired in poverty and struggle, we hope you will join hands with us at such a crucial time to help these students stay on track and access their online classes.
