The MJF Educational Grants Programme

Since 2014, the MJF Educational Grants Programme supports children with limb deficiencies and amputations at the Colombo Friend-in-Need Society, making sure that they have access to better learning opportunities. They also take part at the Annual Aidex Sports Festival which is organised by Dilmah & the Colombo Friend-in-Need Society to inspire and motivate amputees who are users of the Jaipur Limb.

Along with Shakya, 55 other students from Colombo Friend-in-Need Society received educational grants worth Rs. 792,900 from MJF Foundation in September, 2020.
