Dear Kushil Sir & Foundation of Goodness,
First of all I want to thank you for giving us this great opportunity. This place is really memorable as it gave us a beautiful and a valuable experience. We will never forget this day. The personality of Kushil Sir was so great, it means a lot to us. As Dhamma School students, especially as prefects, we learnt a path towards great leadership. We learned about their ‘Goodness’, it was really valuable. We are the leaders of our country. We got a great feeling about this foundation. I think all of us gained a memorable and a valuable experience from this place. Thank you again and again Mr. Kushil Gunasekera. May the noble triple gem bless you!
– Sri Gunananda Dhamma School
Big thank you for making a difference on this beautiful island. I consider myself one of you now, and always it is great to see my people making progress. Thank you for all your hard work! Kushil and the team has been amazing!
– Davud Akhundzada
7-years. That’s the amount of time that has surpassed since I last came to the Foundation of Goodness, Seenigama. In those 7-years I was inspired by many many things, people and ideas, but I believe my journey started on the pivotal day when I came here 7-years ago through Ms. Damayanthi (Mr. Kushil’s sister) who happened to be my Geography Teacher. To whoever is reading this, change starts with you. No matter how small you think your voice is; use it! Your opinion matters. So, spread love, spread kindness and spread Goodness. Be the change the world needs.

Today I was lucky to visit the Foundation of Goodness led by Kushil Gunasekera. I spent the whole day at the centre and witnessed the activities run by the centre. It is a well maintained and well disciplined centre. Staff is very committed and passionate. This centre gives an unbelievable service to the community. Not only the education, as Kushil always says, they teach ethics, kindness, human qualities to be a valuable citizen of Sri Lanka. I have no words to thank Kushil Gunasekera for the service he provides to our nation by running a charitable organisation. Wish them all the very best to run the Foundation of Goodness for many more generations!
– Channa Palansuriya
A very fulfilling day. What an inspiration. Kushil has set an example on how to live a really fulfilling life journey with his foundation of goodness. We live a very short life on this planet. Making a positive impact to the world around us & inspiring many to continue this path is what Kushil has set up with this amazing organisation. I wish Kushil & his team to continuously impact the world & inspire many to live a fulfilling life.
– Harsha Purasinghe

The experience that was shown warmed my heart, it showed a point of view that was different. This journey has influenced me as an individual and I hope to come back soon.
It was a wonderful experience, it was very nice seeing so many happy children with the number of activities and opportunities provided.
It’s now the end of what I knew would be be a wonderful experience, but never truly realised how incredible of an opportunity it was until we were set to return to Colombo. This Foundation is home for all, a safe place, a genuine gift. We felt such pride and joy during our time here, knowing that we were making a change, regardless of how small. Hopefully we’ll be back!
– Volunteer Kavya
The FoG team, the children, everyone has been so kind and amazing to work with and the team was so receptive to all our ideas and activities. I really loved working with the other kids who were so friendly and talented and I can’t complain about the view of Udumulla. See you next time!

I’m from Batticaloa, which has the same infrastructures and community like Seenigama. This Centre gives more power and motivation to me to replicate this idea in my area as well. I don’t know if I will create a mass empire I like this, but I will try to atleast build a community for the ocean conservation. If one man’s dream can create a big impact like this, my dream will also create something and it should. I feel home here.
– Shanjeevan Amalanathan, Founder OceanBiome
The Foundation of Goodness is truly the most inspiring platform to be apart of. Taking a tour of this fulfilling space was truly inspirational and makes me think the true goodness of life lies in helping others. The different activities and courses the place offers is not only life changing but also the best service once can have access to. Shout out to Kushil and his team members for such great work and achievement. It is true that one act of kindness goes a long way.
– Best regards, Sam

Finally I have made it to the Foundation of Goodness after hearing so much from so many people. Congratulations on what you have built and continue to build. Your values are an example to everyone on how to live their life. We will spread the word and help in some way for the future. I connected with your wonderful country several years ago and will always keep coming. I’m here this time with my son George and he would like to come back to volunteer at some point. It has been a very challenging year with COVID and now through the economic crisis Sri Lanka finds it self at a turning point. It will take some time but I have no doubt that the people will rise up to make change for a better future. It has been a privilege to visit.
– Harry Mcgee and George
Dear FoG Team,

It was my pleasure being here and I enjoyed seeing the kids art work so much.
Thank you to everyone who helped set this up and I cannot wait until we come back next time.
– Colette, Whitney and Brian
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
Dear Kushil & Team,

Just been perusing your first Newsletter for 2021 and feel privileged to extend to you my humble but huge respect and congratulations for the unbelievable and varied support – benefits and CARE that the FOG has contributed to the people of my mother country in a year as tragic and sad that was 2020. I will be saving your ‘sermon’ on Generosity for reference and consideration. It is beautifully described. The FoG unique in being a home-based organization that does provide a fantastic spread of help and empowerment. Congratulations, congratulations and congratulations.
With the very best regards,
It has really been an amazing experience getting to visit the Foundation of Goodness and it has definitely been one of the best.

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.
