Sri Lanka is bouncing back from decades of civil war. The country still faces many challenges, one of which is how to empower the large number of women widowed in the war and trying to raise young families. The vast majority of these women and their families are living on $2 or less per day.

That's where HEED (Holistic Empowerment through Enterprise Development) comes in. HEED is a Sri Lankan Christian microfinance institution addressing the needs of Sri Lankan people. It has a Sri Lankan board with Sri Lankan management and staff. It extended an invitation to PEER Servants to partner with it in 2001, and the organizations have been working together to extend the kingdom of heaven to Sri Lanka ever since. Thousands (with more than 70% of them women) have already received loans and basic business training to start or grow small businesses, but tens of thousands remain to be served.

Please click on "Fundraise" to the right and join Team Sri Lanka to raise $5,000+ to create opportunities for the people of Sri Lanka. 100% of what we raise will go to HEED. You can walk right where you are when convenient with you, or join others on Team Sri Lanka at the following Walks:

  • Boston (Wakefield), MA - June 1, 10:00 am
  • Seabrook, NH - August 24, 10:00 am
  • Newburyport, MA - December 14, Noon

If you have donors who prefer to give offline, ask them to make checks out to "PEER Servants" and give/mail them to you. Then just bring them to the Walk or mail them to PEER Servants at PO Box 258, Woburn, MA 01801. Please include a slip noting your name and the team you are on. You can also add the offline donations to your fundraising page to show the progress in meeting your fundraising goal.

May God bless you richly and multiply many times over what we can raise together to bless the people of Sri Lanka.
