About Shakthi Foundation

Shakthi Foundation is a Non-Governmental Organization, which was established within Ambalangoda. The foundation was established to act as a leading force for developing communities and wild life conversation projects that are supported throughout Sri Lanka. Shakthi Foundation was born in May 2013, thanks to donations and contributions that were provided by Shakthi Eurasia Exchange private Limited; a commercial and business based company.

Back in 2013, the Shakthi foundation provided various types of cultural exchange activities for international students. During one of the trips, a decision was made by the students to donate their left over money to something that was more important - the Budddatha School in Ambalangoda. This was the very first donation which contributed towards renovating a school building. Thereafter, we have offered many similar donations, which we have found to be one of the highlights of the students trip. With a great expansion rate of our customer base, we have been able to contribute more and more donations. Amongst these, a 2.5 million rupees worth was put towards the completion of the Balapitiya Base hospital, which quickly became one of the largest one time donations that the company has given. However, this did not last long, as the total donations towards the health sector in Southern Province, went up to 6 million rupees, becoming the largest single donation made.

The main targeted sector of the organisation, is the children’s education, health service and wildlife conservation related projects. We are also tirelessly trying to improve the skills and the quality of the sport in local villages, by donating a volleyball court, sports materials and much more. We feel that this helps children to stay active which means they are more likely to lead a healthy lifestyle as an adult. Furthermore, it provides opportunities for social interaction, creates higher self esteem, encourages positive alternatives of youth offending, antisocial behavior and crime, teaches children to lose and work together with other children from different backgrounds and ethnicities.Whilst projects are our main concern, we are attempting to achieve all the nominated 17 global sustainable development goals (SDG) within the coming years and so the foundation can continue to grow. However, at the moment, there are certain projects that are meeting the goals already.

More than 100 children are currently benefiting from free English education with afternoons. There is a beach cleaning project which runs two days a week, collecting and removing garbage and plastic from the beach. This not only teaches tourists to become more aware about throwing trash, but it teaches them about just how fragile their environment is and what they can do to protect it. Alongside cleaning beaches, a renovation project is also available to tourists whereby they can provide resources, improves wellbeing and quality, while supporting local hospitals and other community buildings. We are continuously trying to maintain an inviting environment where tourists can see local Buddhist temples and partake in trips to mountains and tea plantations. With the anticipated new establishment, in the future, we are looking forward to the expansion of our projects, whereby, we can support women’s empowerment, minimize poverty, clean water and sanitation. We believe that further projects.
