The Gift of Work
Generally speaking, work of some description is easy to come by in the Western world. It may
require humbling oneself, putting in the footwork, or making huge sacrifice… but typically, it can be had. In Sri Lanka, this just isn’t so. Work of any description is sparse, bordering on non-existent. There simply isn’t the ready capital, commerce or clientele.
That’s why we, as The Dust Project, want to help our communities in Sri Lanka to not only think
outside the box, but also give them every possible, practical means of support, start-up, and strategy.
'The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own.'

Support our Business Grant Scheme
The Dust Project has recently embarked on a Small Business Grant Scheme— wherein locals within our community projects in Sri Lanka may submit a detailed application for a business idea. This is filtered through a rigorous selection process, vetted by a committee of our Trustees. Once funded, the recipients are accountable to our Ambassadors in Sri Lanka, and will be required to give Quarterly updates.
