I would like to extend my profound gratitude and deepest appreciation to funding organizations and well-wishers for providing financial assistance for the development of community. The staff, volunteers, community leaders, and members are highly appreciated for your commitment to our work. You are the driving force of CDF’s efforts to overcome challenges to effectively implement our projects, and to achieve our goals. As we look forward to serve the disadvantaged communities, it is your support that makes CDF’s work possible.
On behalf of the CDF team, I kindly thank you for your support.
Mr. F. Charles Morhan Ravie
Vice Chairman’s Message
Due to the outstanding quality of services and the solid reliability provide to community by our team, we have established ourselves as exemplary community workers and we feel proud that our development activities touch the lives of thousands of people around Ratnapura district
In order to achieve its vision, CDF has set well-defined objectives including maximizing efficiency, focusing on needs of community, delivering high quality service, optimizing output, maintaining the highest degree of discipline
The great strides we have made and our many accomplishments along the way would not have been possible without the commitment of our members, partners, networks, staff and volunteers who have promoted CDF’s vision, mission and objectives through their dedication and professionalism.
Furthermore, it is our intention to publicize and promote the role of plantation women in social life of the country so that they can develop and strengthen their capabilities for effective leadership. Women are strong decision-makers and peace builders, and we must ensure that they are allowed to maximize and reach their full potential.
With this in mind, we hope that the new website will complement CDF’s communication activities and become a powerful and effective means of keeping in touch with our members and supporters and of extending our global information exchange.
Mrs. S. A. Maler
I am glad to offer my experience and accountability as a partner in the future developments. Please have every confidence that I will have my eyes on the projects and bring full accountability to those donors that are far removed from this needy region.
Mr. T. P. Hewitt
Director – Foreign Affairs
