Eekai Foundation is a Canadian charity organization founded with a desire to unite those who believe in humanitarian efforts. It is a non-political, non-religious organization with a vision of openness, collaboration and complete transparency. Its objective is to become a hub for the numerous Tamil Canadian organizations and individuals who provide assistance to northern and eastern Sri Lanka as well as empower Tamil Canadian youth.
As a community hub, Eekai Foundation will seek out great initiatives and provide financing, volunteer services and operational expertise to help these initiatives succeed. Our focus is on providing resources where we believe we can have the greatest impact.
Eekai Foundation began with the generous contribution from the proceeds of the sale of Tamil Vision Inc. which will provide the seed funding of over $1 Million CAD over the next 5 years.
Eekai Foundation is founded on the generosity of the Tamil community in Canada and urges every Tamil Canadian to continue to take part in the Foundation in some form or shape. This will be a foundation driven by our community to assist our community members in Sri Lanka and Canada.
Eekai Foundation aims to be an inspiration for Tamil Expatriates around the globe to form their own Eekai Foundation in their respective home countries.
இல்லாதவர்க்கு வழங்குவதே ஈகைப் பண்பாகும் மற்றவர்களுக்கு வழங்குவது என்பது ஏதோ ஓர் ஆதாயத்தை எதிர்பார்த்து வழங்கப்படுவதாகும்.
To give to the destitute is true charity All other gifts have the nature of a measured return.
