Support grassroots initiatives – Sevalanka always encourage and support small-scale community initiatives that need funding to get off -the ground. Each month you can make any of these grassroots initiatives a reality. Since 2005, Sevalanka has offered opportunities for individuals and groups to directly support projects in rural communities in Sri Lanka. Communities often identify needs and opportunities that cannot be supported within the framework of Sevalanka's project funding.
These grassroots initiatives are locally driven and tend to have a high impact. Sponsoring a grassroots initiative allows you to choose the project or projects that interest you most. Through your donation, we can help a vulnerable community in Sri Lanka meet their most dire needs or to make their ideas/dreams a reality.
In the past we have been overwhelmed by the generosity of individual and group donations especially post tsunami and post flood. We have even made arrangements for people to visit the grassroots initiatives they supported.
For the current grassroots initiatives available please contact:
