A holistic rural community development model seeking to bridge the gap between the urban and rural communities via 10 empowerment divisions across 500+ villages island-wide reaching over 35,000 beneficiaries annually, free of cost.
This is awesome! I think especially for many of the day to day donations as opposed to specific project asks, this report on the Sujatha Special Needs Home gives an enormous amount of transparency to donors and supporters. Agreed if you can get governments/authorities to see this on a regular basis may also inspire them to offer some support knowing where the funds are going.
Great job !!
– Paul Davies
Many Heartfelt and Warm Thanks for forwarding your latest FG Newsletter that really moved and astounded me. I have forwarded it to 13 of my specially selected friends and associates and pray that – apart from motivating them to lend their support in a tangible manner – most importantly that they are made AWARE that a Foundation such as yours is ACTIVE and EXISTENT in Sri Lanka – the Land of our birth. From me – a very special Thanks for your contribution of what constitutes the Act of Forgiveness – it was specially relevant and inspirational personally.
Blessings and Good Will and Success to you and your team
– Max Gerreyn

We came to FoG to see its operations today and what we saw goes beyond anything we have seen in out lifetime. People at FoG consider taking care of others as one of the core aspects of their lives. Their dedication and efforts have to be commended limitlessly. Mr. Kushil took his personal time to make sure we were treated as royals even though we haven’t done a bit from what they have done for the community of Seenigama area and all around the country. We are whole heartily looking forward to contribute to their services in any way possible. Big thanks to Mrs. Ludmila and Mr. Saman for showing us every corner in the facility without taking it as a burden. Their smiles will light up the place for years!
– Lahiru & Nuwan
Thanking you kindly for your hospitality and open welcoming arms!
The work the group has done is truly impressive and definitely got myself and Mihiri thinking of how to incorporate and support with some of the design projects we are leading. I truly believe the time is ripe to support the development of “arts and craft” to a more design, value-added, artisanal direction. The skills and craft shown really have potential!
I look forward to visiting again some time soon and spending more time!
– Robert and Mihiri
Thank you for the wonderful hospitality and company. From organizing interviews, giving us a tour, gifts & a delicious lunch. We shall certainly be back again and hope to join FOG as future volunteers and work with you.
