LEM Foundation

Lasith Elmo Memorial Foundation

The Foundation strives to put into action the values and attitudes of Lasith Elmo Fernando whom God called to rest at the age of 18 years. The young lads greatest adage was "let everyone succeed".

Lasith always stood for the underprivileged, and wanted to lend a helping hand to anyone who had to struggle to succeed in life. Although Lasith had a lot of material and moral support for his family, He was a very simple person in every way who always wanted to help friends and others in need. “Lasith Elmo Memorial Foundation” was formulated in memory of our loving Son to carry out the valued ideas and His great aspirations.

The Foundation was inaugurated on 1st September 2003 which coincided with Lasith’s 19th birth anniversary. The main objective of the Foundation was to facilitate the Education of needy students, by providing financial assistance for tuition fees and other basic needs and granting of Scholarships for exceptionally talented students who are less privileged. To guide young Students in pursuit of their carriers in achieving their objectives.

The Foundation based on the above ideals emphasises on providing assistance and guidance to the underprivileged needy students in education, spiritual and social well being - thereby helping them to be successful in life and to be a more enthusiastic and creative person in society.
