The challenges of meeting the educational and health needs of less fortunate Sri Lankan children and others are enormous, but we intend to give them the best possible support by employing our five-star MECHA approach, which includes:

  1. Music
  2. Education
  3. Community Development
  4. Hospitals
  5. Accountability

Our work addresses these five key factors, which are all interlinked, at all levels. In a complex world combining these factors is vital for improving the quality of our services.

We hold musical and cultural events in the UK several times a year to promote, preserve, and maintain our culture and its values for the benefit of our community and to support less fortunate children and other people and underfunded hospitals in Sri Lanka.

Improving these key factors improves the lives of those in need in the UK and Sri Lanka. It helps us to build a safer community by helping to make our society more trustworthy and credible. Above all, governments and the people can hold the foundation accountable, thereby creating perceptions of quality and confidence. We have therefore been careful to implement the Charity Commission’s standards for transparency and accountability, which ultimately has helped us to provide a stable, continuing service and to achieve our objectives successfully
