Supporting Differently Able Entrepreneurs, Dilmah MJF Foundation Small Entrepreneur Programme (SEP)
As part of an initiative to support empowerment with dignity, the MJF Foundation has enabled over 2,000 entrepreneurs from less fortunate communities. The most recent extension to that program saw 12 women and men with disabilities, awarded Dilmah’s Small Entrepreneur Grants. Recognizing their determination to achieve their dreams and support their families, overcoming physical challenges and hard times, all demonstrate what people can achieve with a little help.
Since 2012, Small Entrepreneur grants have been awarded to 128 differently able persons with the involvement of the Colombo Friend in Need Society (CFINS). Dilmah’s MJF Foundation also co-operates with CFINS in supporting differently able youth with educational scholarships and the inspiring AIDEX, sports event for the ‘exceptionally able’. This year 55 more students from CFINS received educational grants.
