My wife Nadee Lokupitiya and I started a family fund in 2015 to provide financial support to talented students in Sri Lanka. We believe that this will help them to better accomplish their educational goals. In addition, we hope to recognize and honor the students for what they have earned through hard work and dedication. We hope to expand this in terms of number of students given support and the amount of award in the coming years.
Funding for Middle School Students
We offer a monthly stipend for two economically disadvantaged middle school students. We prefer to select students from schools we attended. In addition teacher recommendation and financial status are also considered.
