    I am a social entrepreneur in from Sri Lanka, living in the US. My desire is not yet as macro as ‘creating a better world’ or ‘enhancing equality in Sri Lanka’ because want to make a small impact in the lives of the kids and adults, where in general would never have the opportunity. Sri Lanka is a country of private tuition where families have to spend money to send their kids to classes of the size of 100-200. My aim is to create a free learning environment for all communities without any regard to economic status of the students. I want to ignite lights for the children in the the Central part of Sri Lanka in the village of Belihuloya by helping them widen their eyes, to gain access to a basic English and computer education as well as career opportunities. There might be very talented kids in the village, but due to the commonly teaching theory with little practical application, Sri Lankan youth in these villages are faced with many obstacles in finding a suitable job after graduating. Identifying this urgent problem, I would like to provide practical skills in English, Computer Skills and tourism for the youth so that they can have enough skills to better approach career opportunities. Otherwise they will never have a chance to have a great education or a career due to the lack of English knowledge and basic computer an working skills. I believe in the ideology of Buddhism ‘when giving, you are receiving’ so our vision is ‘by giving, you receive more than you expected’

    I have build a wonderful private Eco Chalet retreat with sustainable farming that you will have the opportunity to stay and help out as well.


    I wish to tackle the unemployment rate in rural Sri Lanka, and one of the ways we can do this is by providing language education Free of Charge. Especially in rural parts of Sri Lanka. Language education is unfortunately very expensive in Sri Lanka due to large scale private tuition been a big business and so it is not something that most people have the luxury of being able to afford. I want to provide skills training in English and tourism (when applicable) so that any kid, student or adult in the area with a low salary can have better job opportunities.
