I was fortunate to witness a birth of this great non-profit organization with such a humanitarian cause. I have known Beatrice – the founder – for a number of years and can testify to her good character, passion and dedication to the organization.

The Great!

I had been involved with NIVASA at the very beginning of its formation, when Beatrice made her initial trips to Sri Lanka and brought back compelling stories and a number of testifying photographs.

The Nivasa foundation is an organization that touches many peoples hearts on all different levels. This organization is not only important to those who its aiding but the people who are involved as well. I believe great things will come from this, as well as change the lives of children enslaved victoms. It will also make a great impact on those who were previously enslaved.

The Great!

The Nivasa foundation increases awareness of human trafficking. Beatrice, the founder, discovered the one thing to keep victims of modern-day slavery from accepting additional positions abroad (that can lead to human trafficking) was to support their families. By agreeing with the women that if they stay in Sri Lanka, Nivasa will provide a quality education and basic necessities and break the cycle of slavery. The Nivasa Foundation is very hands on. They travel to Sri Lanka every year to interview the families, children, neighbors, and teachers to ensure the funds are properly distributed. This non-profit cares deeply about the children of human trafficking victims and breaking the cycle of slavery.

The Great!

I see Nivasa providing each family it supports with access to an education and working towards providing a well for water and electricity. Working with Beatrice and the other Nivasa members, I have an increased awareness of modern-day slavery and share this information with my friends and family. Nivasa is right on the nose with the fact that education is the answer to breaking the cycle of slavery.

Increase awareness of the importance of breaking the cycle of slavery, in order to generate more funds & support more families.

As an event volunteer for Beatrice I am throughly impressed by her dedication and managment skills. She pours her heart and soul into NIVASA and is completly devoted to the organization. It is so important that we get the word out about the atrocities that infringe on the civil rights of women.

I have had Beatrice come speak to my college and she was wonderful! She shared a bit about the conflict histrory of Siri Lanka and then dove into her personal experience and what we can do to help the situatuon. I highly recomend her as a guest speaker to any organization or institution.

Its important that women (and men!) come together to stick up for women everywhere and NIVASA is one way we can make change happen.

The Great!

The feeling of accomplishment that I was able to give back to women in need.

It is my hope that NIVASA would expand its network. Perhaps have more people on staff and more events on schedual.
