The 38th session of the Board of Directors of the India-Sri Lanka Foundation was held on March 3 in Bentota, Sri Lanka.
High Commissioners from both countries co-chaired the session — Gopal Baglay representing India and Milinda Moragoda fronting Sri Lankan interests.
ISLF was founded in 1998 to deepen India-Sri Lanka ties, centered on economic, scientific, educational, technical, and cultural cooperation.
The Foundation has been instrumental in strengthening ties between the two nations, already supporting 580 initiatives that have benefited multiple facets — from art to agriculture. These projects include education, research, and social welfare, encompassing a wide range that will bring about fruitful outcomes for both countries.
This year, the Foundation received 98 project proposals from applicants in Sri Lanka and India, which the board of directors will evaluate. Once approved, it will be implemented over the coming months.
