Strength For Life – A Stable Income with a Self Employment Project – This is our main objective, supporting families with children to put their skills to practice. We support talented children by helping their parents to start a self employment to generate a stable income for the family. We believe that family income is important to raise children to make the way for their success in education. Rural areas are selected to find these talented children from schools and our district co-coordinators to monitor these projects.

Skills For Life – Technical Training For School Leavers

We provide support for schools in rural areas to train school leavers for a life skill which can clear the way for young teenagers who leave school after GCE O/L and A/L to have a skill to earn their living. It helps them to stand up on their own without being a burden to the parents and the society.

Foster Parent – If you like to sponsor a child whose father or both parents are deceased or a parent is disabled, we can find a child for you. As a result of natural disasters, we have already found 10 children who are in need of support. A recent visit by a member of BFC has found these children are in a very pathetic situation leaving them living in temporary tents in an open field. These children are now suffering with post traumatic disorders due to loss of loved ones and seeing most life threatening disasters. They need your help. Please come forward to help them at least providing with their educational needs.
Due to the Aranayaka landslide, 10 children lost their fathers and left with their single mothers in temporary shelters.
