Asiana Education Development (AED) is an education based non-profit organization and is approved by the Sri Lankan government as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) serving under the Ministry of Social Services of the Sri Lankan government. AED currently operates 71 schools and a residential facility for orphaned children. AED operates with an overall staff of 290+ teachers and employees.
The goal of AED is to provide education for children most affected by the consequences of war, poverty and the tsunami of December 26, 2004. Sri Lanka has been engaged in an ongoing civil war, which began in 1983, aggravating the economy and producing a cycle of poverty especially among young people. Most of the children served by AED are malnourished, illiterate, and suffer from various forms of trauma often including physical and/or sexual abuse. Others face problems due to broken families or alcoholic parents. Many have simply lost their homes as a result of the civil war, and are left on the streets becoming prey to drug traffickers, smugglers, and child prostitution. AED manifests its core value that each child has immeasurable worth despite economic marginalization by striving to provide for these children the best educational opportunities possible.
Global Poverty Action works on a grassroots level with disenfranchised, poor communities in Ethiopia and Kenya to give them the tools, training, and support they need to thrive and to live with dignity. GPA was formed by refugees from the service area. Our approach is to work in partnership with impoverished communities to develop and implement projects to increase local knowledge, a sense of ownership, and sustainability. We conduct community meetings to determine what the greatest needs are and how the locals think the problem can be solved. Local wisdom is paired with our staff expertise to formulate effective, sustainable solutions. As a result of local input, GPA’s current projects address the vital problem of scarce and contaminated water. All water projects are seated in economic development activities. Once the water crisis is solved, work on education and health care will begin.
