Lighthouse Foundation For Sri Lanka

Lighthouse Foundation for Sri Lanka is a non-governmental charitable organisation facilitating social, human, and environmental development in Sri Lanka. It provides a range of capacity building initiatives and projects that enable young people (aged 15 to 28 years) to make a positive difference to communities in Sri Lanka.

The charity mainly focuses on assisting Sri Lankan young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. By supporting their energy, ideas, and enthusiasm it enables them to make a positive impact and so advance Sri Lanka’s social, economic, and environmental development. The Charity runs projects to advance their livelihoods and skills through partnership building, knowledge sharing, educational skills training, and self-development initiatives. At present Charity’s priority is to support groups living in regions affected by the Asian tsunami disaster of December 2004.

Famous quotes containing the words foundation and/or lighthouse:

    I believe that the mind can be permanently profaned by the habit of attending to trivial things, so that all our thoughts shall be tinged with triviality. Our very intellect shall be macadamized, as it were,—its foundation broken into fragments for the wheels of travel to roll over.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    It is the cry of a thousand sentinels, the echo from a thousand labyrinths; it is the lighthouse which cannot be hidden.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)
