“Aspirations Education Foundation” works under the objective to reach out and help to fulfill the aspirations of the people who are barely able to provide the basic needs for themselves and their families.

It is the tireless effort and dedication of these people that is the driving force behind the success of our country. Sadly, their role in our society is most often neglected and taken for granted. We believe, therefore, that it is our obligation to give back to these people so that they would continue to provide our country with the same amount of dedication and love they put into their work.

The basic concept of this foundation is . It is believed that the primary sector is the foundation of a country’s success. Therefore, this concept that we follow is devoted to this belief – By investing in the education of the primary sector, we are simultaneously investing in further development of our country in the long-run.

This foundation is the Community and Social duty arm of Aspirations Education – a leading career guidance, counseling and placement services centre for overseas higher education. We have a large network of over 100 prestigious universities and institutes in Australia, UK, New Zealand, USA, Canada, Malaysia and Singapore. We have also been accepted as a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact that encourages businesses the world-over to adhere to human rights and anti corruption standards while undertaking socially responsible ventures. We are proud to say that we are the only Sri Lankan educational organization which is a part of this UN initiative.
