Empowering Lives in Sri Lanka with the Making Ends Meet Project

The Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation is committed to supporting inclusive education and economic empowerment for people with disabilities in Sri Lanka.

In the regions of Galle and Matara, Sri Lanka, the Equality-based Community Support and Training (ECSAT) organization is making significant strides in supporting people with disabilities and their families. Since 2017, ECSAT has partnered with the Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation to promote inclusion and equality. The Making Ends Meet Project, a continuation of earlier successful initiatives, focuses on education, advocacy, and vocational training.

Sri Lanka faces considerable challenges in including people with disabilities, especially in education and employment. Many individuals with disabilities remain marginalized. ECSAT is dedicated to changing this through programs recognized by the local government, which offer education, vocational training, therapy, and counseling services. These efforts aim to improve the lives of people with disabilities and their families.

The Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation supports ECSAT by covering training costs, infrastructure, and administration. This support enables ECSAT to provide high-quality vocational training and resources to the community, helping individuals with disabilities achieve independence and sustainable livelihoods. By involving families in the training process, ECSAT fosters a supportive community environment. This approach promotes inclusivity and understanding, creating a more equitable society.

The Making Ends Meet Project, supported by the Lemonaid & ChariTea Foundation, is making a meaningful impact in the Galle and Matara regions. Together, they are enhancing lives and promoting a more inclusive future for people with disabilities in Sri Lanka.
