To celebrate UK-Sri Lanka cultural relations, the British Council Sri Lanka will be funding a small number of grants. We are looking for organisations that are seeking opportunities for collaboration. Similarly, the British Council also may come forward to offer certain social educational opportunities free of charge, open to the general public. Watch this space.

The funding and educational opportunities will be listed below as and when these opportunities come up. 

Educational Opportunity: Platinum Jubilee Women in Leadership

Empowering women and girls and achieving gender equality are crucial to creating inclusive, open and prosperous societies. Gender inequalities, however, persist in many countries so it is important that we find new ways of addressing this issue.

The British Council contributes to this agenda by creating opportunities for dialogue to influence policies that benefit women and girls; work with partners to promote access and opportunity for women and girls and build their skills and confidence to achieve their potential and have more influence over decisions that affect their lives. We also aim to enhance the UK’s role in promoting gender equality internationally, and its overall contribution to the Sustainable Development Goal (no. 5): Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.

Towards this end, the British Council, in partnership with Clore Social Leadership is offering emerging women leaders, in the age group of 24-35 years, a lifetime opportunity to develop their leadership capacity and skills through an eight week online, self-access leadership course. The course will develop your ability to become more effective in leading interventions to support gender equality and women’s leadership within your sector and/or community.
