We at Swarna Mallawarachchi Foundation (“SMF”) strongly believe that empowering women and educating children are two key catalysts to a country’s economic and social development.
Spearheaded by Swarna Mallawarachchi, 28 time Best Actress award winning veteran Sri Lankan actress, well known for her on and off screen activism for the empowerment of women, SMF aims to bring women together in a safe space to learn life, business and vocational skills to foster change within their spheres of influence. In addition, we focus on improving the environment of children’s education in rural areas and teaching children the value of diversity, reconciliation and rehabilitation, especially in post-war Sri Lanka.
Our board is comprised of local and international professionals spanning the not-for-profit as well as the private sector. Together, our board brings together an invaluable pool of talent, wisdom and experiences as well as a deep passion to foster change and create opportunities for the most vulnerable people groups within Sri Lanka: women and children.
We invite you to partner with us to create a BetterSri Lanka for the next generation.
