St Benedict's Supports the Foundation of Goodness
St Benedict's has developed a significant link with the Foundation of Goodness, based in Hikkaduwa on the south coast of Sri Lanka.
This charity has done incredible work to make a difference to the lives of extremely impoverished rural communities, especially in the wake of the 2004 Tsunami.
In April 2018, St Benedict’s students visited the Foundation’s headquarters and spent an afternoon coaching and playing with local children who are beneficiaries of the project. A donation of £7,000, raised by St Benedict’s students, was presented to the Foundation during this visit.
Subsequent to the terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday 2019, the School has committed to continuing to support the Foundation’s work.
