SATVA FUND SRI LANKA is a nonprofit organization (with tax-exempt status) established in the USA.
The goal of SATVA FUND is to positively impact the lives and wellbeing of Sri Lankans in need by funding projects that typically fall below the radar screens of larger organizations.
Here’s how Satva Fund has been making a difference recently…
The Araliya Trust aims to support families whose school-age children may be in danger of discontinuing their education because they cannot meet the financial burden of education. Satva Fund agreed to provide a monthly stipend to ten students in different parts of Sri Lanka.
In July 2023, Satva Fund launched an initiative to assist eight disadvantaged students to continue their education. Four students are in secondary school (Grades 7, 10 and 11, respectively) and attend schools in Colombo and Haputale.
The School for the Blind in Sri Lanka was founded over 110 years ago and provides essential services to hundreds of blind and visually-impaired children. One way to bring a sense of normalcy to these children is involving them in sports, such as cricket.
Equality-based Community Support and Training (ECSAT) is a non-profit organization established in Galle in 2005 to assist vulnerable and marginalized members of the community, particularly children and people with disabilities.
In August 2023, Satva Fund provided funds to the Drops of Light organization to partially support the educational journey of two students (both 16 years old) in Weligama and Matara scheduled to take their Advanced Level examinations in 2025.
In July 2023, Satva Fund provided funds for the renovation of the Home Science Room at the Nuffield School for Deaf and Blind in Kaithadi, Jaffna. The Nuffield School is a branch of the Ceylon School for the Deaf and Blind.
In August 2023, Satva Fund donated two pediatric weighing scales (gifted to Satva Fund by generous donors) to the President of the Sri Lanka College of Pediatricians for use in a pediatric hospital in Sri Lanka.
Community Meal Share Trust is a not-for-profit organization seeking to share meals with underprivileged communities in Sri Lanka. A Satva Board member had been working with Community Meal Share Trust for some months and initiated a discussion with Trust officials to determine a way to collaborate.
Satva Fund’s goal is to positively impact the lives and wellbeing of Sri Lankans in need, particularly in the context of the deep economic crisis the country faces.
