Ruwan’s Family Story Began in 2001

Today, Ruwan is now a successful Attorney at Law. & his children are excelling in their education. Manusha is studying AI -Computer Science in an Australian University. Hirusha is also studying in an Australian University to achieve his Bachelor in Accountancy.

When we first met Ruwan he was working as a Tour Guide. Later he joined our team and became our Foundation’s Representative in Sri Lanka. In recent years, the Foundation sponsored him to complete his studies to qualify as a practicing lawyer. In doing so, we undertook a family support program for the duration of his studies, of approximately 2 years.

His eldest son, Manusha, has been sponsored by the Foundation for his education in English medium. From year to year his performance has been of the highest level, achieving the 1st or 2nd position in class each year. He excelled in Math’s and Science and had aspirations of studying Computer Science at University.

Hirusha, studied in English medium and has also excelled at school- again, like his brother achieved the 1st or 2nd position in class each year.

Both children are avid readers and have a great desire to achieve excellence in their academic life.
In the coming years, the Fernando family will be in a position where all their children will have professional qualifications which will provide many career opportunities. They have expressed their desire to assist others who are financially challenged, to receive a sound education. It is their way of “giving back” to others who are less fortunate.

RUWAN is another pleasing example of how education and support can provide empowerment and success.
