This week we celebrate the success of our Sports Stars!

Over the years the Foundation of Goodness has identified exceptional talent from rural Sri Lanka in the field of Cricket. They have been identified through our sports coaching programmes offered free of charge across the country.

Outstanding players who are brimming with talent and potential are often spotted by our coaches and are then nurtured by way of special training, mentoring, equipment and scholarships, to truly reach their full potential.

We are delighted at the recent opportunity to congratulate two of our star players, Kaveesha Dilhari of Devapathiraja College, Rathgama and Navod Paranawithana of Mahinda College, Galle for being adjudged the Best School Cricketers at the 42nd annual Observer SLT-Mobitel Schools Cricket Awards Ceremony last week!

They received the awards from Chief Guest former Sri Lanka Cricket Captain Sanath Jayasuriya.

Both Kaveesha and Navod have always blown us away with their sporting prowess, in recognition of which they have received equipment, scholarships and training at the Sports Academy in Seenigama, with Kaveesha being the captain of the Seenigama Ladies Cricket Team and Navod being an MCC scholarship recipient.

Additionally, another outstanding cricketer whom we had the pleasure of mentoring and supporting (especially through the sponsorship of Harry Solomons and Kingsgrove Sports in Australia), Ramesh Mendis, performed brilliantly during the Sri Lanka Vs Bangladesh Test Series 2021, bowling an impressive 2/86 and 4/103. 

May he continue to go from strength to strength.

The Foundation of Goodness will continue to empower rural Sri Lankan sports men and women to reach their full potential.
