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.
The Foundation of Goodness prides itself on the many rural Sri Lankans that graduate from the courses offered at our flagship venue in Seenigama, free of charge! These courses help rural Sri Lankans to gain additional skills and qualifications to succeed in life.
The 2020 graduating batch is exceptional in their determination to succeed despite the many challenges brought on by COVID-19. 106 beneficiaries from the women’s empowerment centre graduated from courses such as, Pastry & Bakery, Curtain Making, General Cookey, Dressmaking, Advanced Dressmaking, Food Processing, Saree Work, Beauty Culture and Soft Toy Making.
In addition to the graduating ceremony, the beneficiaries of the Women’s Empowerment Centre held a mini-market and the annual bridal show, showcasing their new skills and talent.
32 students graduated from the MS Office and Graphic Design Course, while 54 students successfully completed courses in Tamil, Public Speaking, Electrical Installations & Maintenance and Photography!
Moreover, we have 7 new professional divers, who completed our Dive training course at the Dive For Good Centre. We hope these new skills learnt open many doors of better opportunities that lead to happiness and prosperity.
We wish all our 199 graduates, the very best of luck for their future endeavours!
