Help us Raise Money for These Kids in Need
We are participating in a Charity Ride around Sri Lanka to help raise funds for rural school children within Sri Lanka. These kids have insufficient resources to be effectively educated, and there is a mission that we are supporting to help bridge that gap.
The Adventure Starts July 26 2018
We’ll be starting at Jaffna and ending in Colombo, and I’ll be travelling with my 2 children, Jack and Stephanie, and 20 other Australians.
The ride is in excess of 1,030 kms and my goal is to show my children how we can all make a difference with experiences like this.
What’s the Cause?
We are raising funds to provide a resource for children in rural Sri Lanka, so they get access to tools and technology that the city kids get.
With enough money raised, we intend to set up a “Village Heart Beat Centre” in Moneragala, which is one of the poorer towns in Sri Lanka.
The money raised will fund it for 3 years to operate, and that includes the wages of teaching staff. We aim to make a difference to the lives of 750 children, youths and females.
You will no doubt agree that this is a worthy cause.
What is the Organisation behind this?
Foundation of Goodness (FOG) is a NGO in Sri Lanka which started in 1999 with the aim of narrowing the gap between the rural and urban communities by unconditionally supporting the disadvantaged people in every possible way. FOG has already empowered over 30,000 lives in over 100 villages. They have a vision of setting up 25 Village Heart Beat Projects. We have been blessed that FOG is facilitating this life changing initiative, which is the 10th Village Heart Beat Project.
Interested to Donate?
If you would like to donate to help support these children, you’ll be pleased to know that 100% of your funds will be going directly to the cause. The money raised will help to build another resource centre in another rural location.
