The Prithipura Communities is a non-profit, non-governmental organization registered as a charity in Sri Lanka and catering to people regardless of race or religion.
In total we have been working with people with disabilities for over 40 years and recognize that everyone has something to offer, no matter how big or small.
The people who arrive with us as children have often been abandoned by their parents and consequently have little hope of returning to the community after rehabilitation, education and training.
For them, the Prithipura Communities is home, and the internal job opportunities at our four centres have been developed to ensure they can engage in meaningful work.
What is Mektrax Cycling doing for Prithipura?
We have Tom Egerton to thank for this amazing opportunity to help raise awareness for Prithipura Communities.
6am one morning while trying to catch my breath, always a challenge on his Tuesday morning GH ride in Dubai, I was discussing social responsibility, following which he introduced me to his sister Katherine who runs Prithipura Communities in Sri Lanka.
It’s utterly humbling to hear and see what other people do and I am personally delighted to do everything we can to raise awareness and essential funds to help her work.
We are planning several elements to this for 2019
Christopher Swan, CEO and Founder of Mektrax Cycling has committed to riding every single day of 2019. Besides his obvious passion for riding his bike he is doing this as a challenge to himself but mainly to raise awareness and money for Prithipura Communities. Below is a link where you can donate towards this fantastic cause.
