Based at Mirissa Harbour, Mirissa Water Sports provides exciting whale watching, sports fishing, sailing, coastal cruises, snorkelling and boating activities for visitors to Southern Sri Lanka where employment opportunities for young people were always extremely limited.
As a consequence of the tsunami, the situation became even worse.
That is the reason why Building A Future foundation has been created by Mr. Pierre Pringiers, Honorary Consul of Belgium to Sri Lanka and Mr. Tissa Jinasena, of Jinasena group of companies of Sri Lanka.
Building A future foundation was launched with the purpose of bringing in new ideas, technology and training which will generate employment for the youth from the tsunami affected coastal areas.
The whole Building A Future initiative aims at getting 50 young people per year to find a sustainable source of revenue.
Mirissa Water Sports is the first spin off of this initiative with initial employment of 10 people
