Message from the Chairman

Ajith Abeysekera - ChairmanAspirations Education was born out of a resolute commitment to be a fountain of inspiration to the Sri Lankan community to help them realize their aspirations.

Our core business model is providing career guidance and counseling services to students who wish to pursue their education overseas. In addition, as a socially responsible organization, we have established the Aspirations Education Foundation as our social entrepreneurial arm through which we regularly grant monthly scholarships to less privileged students to continue their primary and secondary schooling in Sri Lanka.

Further, by pioneering the first-ever educational TV reality show for students through our innovative spirit, we have given the youth of Sri Lanka an unprecedented opportunity to enhance their personality and build confidence by engaging in many stimulating initiatives. These rewarding experiences in all the varied facets of our journey from inception, we recall with great pride!

Our unswerving determination to be the most excellent as a corporate entity has won the admiration of international universities in Australia, New Zealand, UK, Malaysia, Singapore, and local principals, teachers, and parents alike. We thank them all for their continuous support, cooperation, and encouragement. In our genuine ethical efforts we are honoured to have been accepted by the United Nations Global Compact – a UN initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

In Sri Lanka, out of the large number of students who sit for the Advanced Level Examinations annually, a very high percentage of students who qualify are quite unsuccessful in gaining admission to local universities mainly due to lack of placement capacity. This compels students who can afford to look for higher education options in universities and institutes abroad; and going overseas for further education has become increasingly common practice among the student population of Sri Lanka, but, unfortunately, most of them are greatly hampered or misinformed due to a lack of proper channels to disseminate relevant and accurate information. This would no doubt lead to frustration, despair and disillusionment of both students and their parents. Further, some of these credulous students become victims of unscrupulous elements who are on the lookout to thrive at their expense.

At this crucial juncture in our country, therefore, I see great value in committing resources and effort in our enterprise to provide genuine career guidance and counseling to students keeping their interests and aspirations at heart, and no amount of hard work would be superfluous in carrying out this all important mission of giving hope to a new generation through a sound education. It is, in fact, the only way to chart a new beginning for Sri Lanka. Aspirations Education Foundation is designed in a manner that by receiving our professional services absolutely free of charge, you will indirectly be helping your own brethren who are not as fortunate as you. It is a creative mechanism that allows you to realize your aspirations while automatically giving the light of hope to the life of a student who otherwise may be unable to realize his or her aspirations! Be a part of our innovative and social entrepreneurial process that will make a difference in all our lives! The dreams of Aspirations today, will be our reality tomorrow.
