SLCF aims to redefine the concept of charity by reinventing the giving concept. Not just receiving by giving but trying to sustain by giving, instead of expecting more to be given. SLCF works to address the root causes of poverty and the marginalisation of vulnerable groups by building communities’ skills and promoting good governance within society and community organisations. Part of SLCF’s strategy, is supporting the districts that are highly affected with poverty and addressing mainly children, rural communities, single mothers, unemployed youth, and adults with special needs and equally distributing and contributing towards improvements across districts. Reducing digital disparities, encouraging entrepreneurial skills amongst the communities, encouraging cross fertilisation discussion of ideas between societies are key programme focused areas of SLCF. The projects are based on the concept of design thinking with zero based process reengineering, findings ways to avoid any intermediary costs and agile economy development. Using shared value creation as a basic concept, SLCF tries to identify breakthrough for self development and sustainability of an individual and society in the long run.
We build families for children in need, we help them shape their own future and we share in development of their communities. We support their life to be independent rather than to be dependent. We create a cycle of self- sustaining economic environment. We try to address all their specific needs and give a Hand Up and not a Hand Out!
Our vision is of vibrant, articulate, inclusive, and sustainable rural communities across Sri Lanka contributing to a prosperous, equitable, peaceful, stable living for an individual and creating a well stable economic society.
