About Horizon Lanka

about Horizon Lanka: children learning in class

Who we are

Horizon Lanka Foundation is a non-profit organization located in Mahawilachchiya. It is registered as a Guarantee Limited Company since September 2009. There are primarily local children who come to Horizon Academies after public school, during weekends and public school vacations. Thus, the foundation runs academic programs to students in rural villages in Sri Lanka. At the moment, Horizon Lanka Foundation is in the process of getting NGO status for the organization. As a not-for-profit social enterprise, it commits to reinvest its entire surplus (if any) to further social missions

What we do

The Horizon Lanka Foundation is a pillar in the local communities and works with them to improve the lives of all who are involved. We do this by assigning our local and foreign volunteers to assist the public schools. Horizon Academies do not open during mornings except for school holidays and long public school vacations. Our ultimate goal is to empower rural youth so that they may work towards improving the conditions of their community as well as the surrounding communities. The Academies teach several subjects to the children. These subjects include:

  1. English
  2. Information and Communication Technology
  3. Science
  4. Mathematics
  5. Fine Arts
  6. Sports
  7. Presenting and Public Speaking
  8. Personal Development

Due to our dedicated staff and the hard work of local and foreign volunteers, the students also learn important life skills such as interpersonal communication, intercultural communication, tolerance, leadership, caring for others and the environment, sustainable development and teamwork.
