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 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.
Review from Guidestar
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.
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.
