Berendina receives award from SUNFO

Berendina Development Services (BDS) received an Institutional Excellence Service award from the Sri Lanka United Nations Friendship Organization (SUNFO). The award was presented to Berendina at a workshop and prize-giving organized by SUNFO coinciding with Global Goals for Sustainable Development Action Day recently.

SUNFO selected five institutions from five provinces which have partnered them in educating and promoting UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development among schoolchildren and youth. Berendina and SUNFO hosted a workshop recently at Malki Reception Hall in Yatiyanthota on the importance of global goals for sustainable development.

Over 110 schoolchildren and youth were present.

Director General, SUNFO, Dr. A. Wijetunge said 193 world leaders who gathered in New York in September are committed to 17 global goals to achieve three extraordinary things in the next 15 years (2015-2013).

Berendina and Sunfo also organized a similar workshop at St. Anthony's Hall, Batticaloa. Participating youth learned the global goals for sustainable development including no poverty, zero hunger, good health and well-being, quality education, gender equality, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, reduced inequalities, sustainable cities and communities, climate action, peace and justice, strong institutions and partnership for the goals.

Around 120 young people were recipients of the Berendina Bright Students educational scholarship.
